The Jack Hadley Black History Museum opened in 2006 with a collection of thousands of artifacts documenting the history, struggles and astounding achievements of African-Americans locally and nationally.

The collections include exhibits on slavery, the black military experience, life on plantations, black women achievers, civil rights and much more. Among the exhibits, you will find one dedicated to the amazing Lt. Henry Ossian Flipper, Buffalo Soldier. Lt. Flipper, was born a slave in Thomasville in 1856 and against all odds became the first black graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1877. 

The Black History Museum also offers the Black Heritage Trail Guided Tour Booklet. This is a self-guided tour or step-on tour for groups covering 68 sites significant in the history of Thomasville's black community.
