Superintendent Ahna Wilson introduces the Thompson Memorial African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church and Parsonage rehabilitation project.

In 2022, the National Park Service will break ground on a rehabilitation project many years in the making. Beginning in spring of this year, contractors working closely with Harriet Tubman National Historical Park and the NPS Historic Architecture, Conservation, and Engineering Directorate will begin the laborious and painstaking process of rehabilitating the Thompson Memorial African Methodist Episcopal Church and the adjacent parsonage.
The purposes of this project are:
  • Stabilize the two structures, which are currently unsafe for entrance.
  • Prevent any further deterioration of building features which date back to the period of significance for the property (Harriet Tubman’s lifetime).
  • Provide opportunities for the community and all park visitors to forge personal connections to Harriet Tubman and her legacy by experiencing the place where she worshipped, celebrated, and worked.
  • Provide accessible facilities for visitor comfort, information, and education.
  • Provide on-site workspace for National Park Service staff.
