Thirteen New Historic Sites Added to The Tuskegee Civil Rights and Historic Trail

On Friday thirteen new historic sites were officially dedicated in Tuskegee.

The city of Tuskegee played a major roll in the Civil Rights Movement.

Now more historic people and places in Tuskegee are being recognized.

“We lift up even more individuals and places in our community where great things took place” said Tuskegee Mayor Tony Haygood.

The Jewish American Society for Historic Preservation, with the City of Tuskegee and Tuskegee University made the project happen.

“There’s a future that’s going to be even better than we can imagine it today, and was certainly much better than it was for the people we are trying to remeber from before,” says  Jerry Clinger President of the Jewish-American  Society for Historic Preservation.

Total cost for the sites was around $40,000.

There are 18 historic markers in Tuskegee.
