The Safe House Black Historic Museum in Greensboro is a site of great significance to the Black history and the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 60s. The Museum documents the struggle for equality at the local level along with other highlights of the civil rights movement in Hale County. The museum is housed in a small yellow shot gun house in the Depot neighborhood, a home where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once sought refuge from the Ku Klux Klan. The museum was founded by Mrs. Theresa Burroughs in 1992.
