Fayette Area Historical Initiative African American Museum and Cultural Center was created to collect, preserve and interpret African American experiences and community life in Martinsville/Henry County. This is achieved with the use of displays and exhibits to highlight history and culture.

Exhibits showcase more than 100 years of African American history on Fayette Street. The exhibits, "Walking down the street what do you see?" and "Where we were...where are we today?" show 2 miles of road along Fayette St. While traveling the 2 mile stretch, you will see black owned businesses, doctor's offices, retail stores and historic buildings.

See black history exhibits on the local as well as the national level. Photo displays of events, educators, doctors, businesses and churches are all here. Stop in today, you may see some familiar faces.

Hours of Operation:
Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday 11am - 4pm
Friday, Saturday and Monday by appointment (Groups only)
