The church that beards Warren Thomas' name in Hickman, Kentucky, officially opened in 1869, and the first educational classes for African Americans began in its basement the next year. Fire destroyed the first building, but in 1898, another permanent building opened and it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. The 115 year old church structure has suffered theft and other problems that must be fixed before visitors can experience the site again. Kate Lochte has more with Jeannette Dean, who chairs the Warren Thomas Historic Society that strives to preserve this memorial to African American leaders of the 19th Century in Hickman.
