Knowing where we have been helps prepare us for where we can go. The Gant Home is a beacon of hope for a new generation. At a time when a slave pulled himself up from servitude to leadership, his foot prints through time have created a path toward success. This home represents the true meaning of freedom. The refusal to allow any person, place or corrupt idea to stand in the way of a person with a dream.
Our staff is completely composed of
volunteers like you!
Facility tours, facilitating meetings and the beautification of the Gant House, is all done through the friends and members of the
Nelson T. Gant Foundation.
Join us in our quest to keep our community history alive.
