The old Burns Methodist Episcopal Church built in 1910 holds both state and local landmark status in testimony to its many years of service to the African American community. Following its recently completed restoration, it has begun a new era of community service as the Burns-Belfry Museum & Multicultural Center. It offers a professionally designed museum exhibit on African American history from slavery through Civil Rights. A short video accompanies the remarkable history of the building.
