Howard Thurman Home

This two-story frame vernacular structure, the childhood home of Dr. Howard Thurman, constructed circa 1888, was one of the first located on the street. Born in the home in 1899, Dr. Thurman lived there until his departure for high school in Jacksonville at age 18.
Dr. Thurman was known as a theological advocate of the unity of the human race. As teacher and Dean of Chapel at Morehouse College and Boston University, Dr. Thurman provided pastoral guidance and political counsel to leaders of the nation's civil rights movement.
