Credo being replaced on Courthouse lawnCredo Restoration: Memorial Returned!

 

The memorial to Hampton's John Peters Humphrey, entitled "Credo", was unveiled in June, 2008. Since then it has endured the elements and especially suffered through harsh winters and temperature extremes.

 

Credo was in need of restoration work. On October 28, 2015, the figures of John the adult and John the child, along with the two semicircular benches, were removed from the site and taken to sculptor Darren Byers' studio for rest and recovery. After a period of drying out, the sculpture's cracks were repaired, the benches given a new weather-proof covering, and artist Kathy Hooper touched up the paint.








On June 17, 2016, just in time for Hampton High Schoolís Grand March, a better, healthier-looking memorial was returned to its permanent resting place on the historic Kings County Courthouse lawn. The Foundation wishes to thank Darren Byers and Kathy Hooper for their excellent work on this project.  If you have not yet had the opportunity to see it up close; please do.  Also we would like to thank the Town of Hampton for keeping the grounds so well maintained.










Mural at Hampton Elementary


On the last day of school in June the students and staff at Hampton Elementary School unveiled their beautiful Human Rights Mural entitled ďJohnís DreamĒ.  The Foundation was pleased to assist with the funding of this project, which was facilitated by Kathy and Sue Hooper in conjunction with the HES Staff. 










Artifacts at the Kings County Museum


In August the Foundation moved the John Peters Humphrey cabinet and artifacts from the Hampton High School Library to the new exhibition space in the Kings County Museum.  We wish to thank HHS Librarian Shane MacMillan for caring for the cabinet and contents for many years.  The Foundation hopes that more people will be able to see the artifacts and learn about John Peters Humphrey at the new location.
