Tinner Hill Monument Park

PUSH provided a design concept plan to memorialize Joseph and Elizabeth Tinner, who fought segregation laws after the borders of neighboring towns were redrawn cutting directly through their black community. This led to the first rural branch of the NAACP.  The concept introduced interpretive walls, pavilions and sculptures organized along a perimeter wall reinforcing the symbol of the foundation walls of the original house on the site.
