Black History Exhibit Now On Display

Hi Everyone!!

Please stop by the month of February to view our "Pioneers of Black History" Exhibit and learn more about just a handful of the fascinating Henderson men and women who made a mark on their community, and their world! Our exhibit features local notables like Thelma Johnson and Thomas Platt as well as some figures who lived in Henderson as children then went on to do big things in America despite informal and formal racial segregation.
