Frenchtown residents welcomed a new historic landmark today, the Taylor House Museum
The Taylors who lived at the home, built in 1894, were well-known members of the black community. The museum is broken up into three rooms: the Taylor room, the Civil Rights room and the Frenchtown room. Each room helps remember an important piece of black history.
"It says that it's very important that we don't lose that history and we recognize it and we did that here today with the grand opening of this museum," says Delaitry Hollinger curator.
The home was set to be demolished in 1995, but Aquilina Howell, granddaughter of the Taylors helped save the home. The museum is open from one to five p .m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Admission is free.
