EVANSVILLE — A new heritage trail has been dedicated in Evansville that traces the history of African-Americans in the southwestern Indiana city.
The new "African American Heritage Trail" opened Wednesday,
WEHT-TV reports that the trail provides a walking tour past Lincoln School, Liberty Baptist Church and the area's business district, with stops that include stories and landmarks.
The trail was dedicated by the Evansville African American Museum and Evansville's metropolitan development department.
Museum founder Sondra Matthews says that "history is just not a part of our education process" but also something that should be available "at home, in the churches, and in the community."
Brochures for the walking tour are available at the trail-head at the Evansville African American Museum.
