This house, built in 1875, was the home of the Rev William Hayes Ward (1835-1916) from 1875 until 1914. A leading neo-abolitionist and Congregationalist clergyman, Ward joined the staff of The Independent (New York, NY), an abolitionist newspaper, in 1868 and was editor-in-chief from 1896 to 1913. Ward championed African American rights through education, integration and voting rights. He was a leader of the American Missionary Association which established and supported black colleges and secondary schools in the South. Ward was an original organizer and a keynote speaker at the first National Negro Conference in 1909 at which the NAACP was formed.
