About

The 1901 Pope House represents life for a prominent African-American family. The house was built by Dr. Manassa Thomas Pope (1858-1934), one of the first graduates of the Leonard School of Medicine at Shaw University, an officer in an all-Black volunteer unit during the Spanish-American War and a candidate for City Council in 1919. Occupied by family members until 2000, the house contains a remarkable collection of original furnishings, artifacts and documents that date back to 1851.

Free admission. Hours: Sat., 9am-4pm; Sun., 1-4pm. Guided tours are offered throughout open hours.
