Rebecca Turner Elementary School & Benjamin Turner Middle School
Join the National Park Service in a recognition of the renaming of the nearby public schools in honor of Benjamin and Rebecca Turner, former slaves who established a family homestead in the shadows of St. Paul’s Church in the 19th century. The event includes music on the historic Erben pipe organ, student presentations, and a floral tribute at the grave of Rebecca Turner. The event helps to celebrate the centennial of the Park Service, appreciating a more complete understanding of our nation’s history and urging a more inclusive future.
