Durham Visitors and new residents

Durham Welcomes You!

In the 1970s, when the St. Joseph’s AME Church congregation moved to a new church home, the original structure became the catalyst for forming the St. Joseph’s Historical Foundation (SJHF)—incorporated in 1975 to preserve the embellished old sanctuary and adapt it for cultural and civic events. SJHF’s mission is to maintain and advance the heritage and culture of historic Hayti and the African American experience through programs that benefit the broader community locally, nationally, and globally. Hayti Heritage Center lists on the register of national historic landmarks. Descendants of the original residents of the district once known as “Black Wall Street” continue to visit the Center along with other residents and visitors from surrounding areas.
