A GoFundMe page has been started, to help raise money for the creation of a museum in Battle Creek.

In a release, the Sojurner Truth Museum says that they intend to purchase the former Freemont Elementary School Building, and transform it into a museum and conference center to showcase Sojourner Truth’s legacy.

The Battle Creek Public Schools’ Board of Education voted to let the sale go forward on Monday, after Fremont was closed in July.  Sojourner Truth lived in Battle Creek from 1857, to her death on November 26, 1883.
