History of Centennial Hill comes to life at Sunday lecture

Richard Bailey prepares for a Sunday lecture on the history of Centennial Hill at the Church of the Good Shepherd.

The history and people of one of Montgomery’s oldest neighborhoods were the focus of a special Sunday lecture.

Richard Bailey presented the lecture “An Afternoon in Centennial Hill” Sunday at the Church of the Good Shepherd on South Jackson Street.

The event was sponsored by the Landmarks Foundation and the Centennial Hill Neighborhood Association.

Several present and former residents were on hand to share firsthand knowledge of the community.

Civil rights pioneer Johnnie Carr and state Sen. Charles Langford live in the community.

Centennial Hill is near the downtown area and includes many notable landmarks, including Alabama State University and Booker T. Washington Magnet High School.
