Celebrate Black History Month by learning about Timmons Hall at Silver Springs Park. Did you know Timmons Hall was previously a church, serving Springfield’s African American community for more than 80 years, before it was relocated to Silver Springs Park?

Find out how this building’s rich history fits into Timmons Hall today in this interview with the facility’s coordinator, Christine Peoples. And check out two Black History Month events coming up this weekend at Timmons Hall:

First, Dr. LaGarrett King presents “Rethinking Black History Month,” Friday, Feb. 5, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., livestreamed at City of Springfield, MO - Connect with SGF. And see a live performance of the new play, “The Assignment,” on Sat., Feb. 6, 3 p.m., featuring Emmy- award winning Dr. Carmaletta Williams in the role of author, anthropologist and folklorist Zora Neal Hurston.
