The tour, lasting approximately 90 minutes, begins at 8 am from Changing Tides Cultural Center, 613 Washington Street.
In honor of Juneteenth, join local historian Phyllis Bridges for a historical tour of Oakwood Municipal Cemetery, 512 Steele Street, at 11 am. Rediscover historical stories that have gone unearthed for decades of High Point's early Black Settlers. Learn more about former slaves, free people of color, businessmen & women of the past.
