History of Church Hill

One of our members led us on a walk in the area where he grew up near the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club.

When he was a child, there was a plantation house on the site where the Boys and Girls Club is located.  He can remember white men sitting on the porch in rocking chairs during the day and can remember KKK meetings as well.

One strip of houses near there housed the doctors, lawyers, teachers.  Teachers lived very near to the school in which they taught and were neighbors to the children of the neighborhood.

One woman we met, our church member said, was the prettiest girl around there and everybody wanted a date with her.
