Sojourner Truth Memorial Statue


The African American Heritage Trail begins at the Sojourner Truth Memorial Statue at the corner of Park and Pine Streets. Just a few doors down from her house at 35 Park Street the statue was dedicated in 2002 after ten years of organizing and fundraising.. The site for the Sojourner Truth memorial statue is a former small city park at the corner of Pine and Park Streets in Florence. The city donated the site for the statue in November 2001. The idea for a memorial statue that would honor Sojourner Truth was the first project of the Sojourner Truth Memorial Statue Committee, and became a reality through local fundraising.
