Erected in 1994 by the City of Augusta in cooperation with First Christian Church and the Tubman High School Alumni Association. Mrs. Tubman was one of Augusta’s most generous benefactors in the 19th Century. Not only did she build the original and the current First Christian Church buildings for the congregation, but she also provided Tubman High School for young ladies in the 1870s, and quietly assisting in every worthy cause. She invested heavily in the Georgia Railroad, and King Mill. She emancipated her slaves and assisted them to emigrate to Liberia through the American Colonization Society. Her good deeds were numerous, and continue to positively impact Augusta today.
