What We Do
The re-organized Knights & Daughters of Tabor work with numerous entities interested in the preservation of the rich history and heritage of the City of Mound Bayou. We are committed to the restoration and re-use of the historic structures and increasing awareness by telling the stories of the many African Americans who strived and accomplished a community which produced citizens and services who contributed much to the United States of America.
The City of Mound Bayou has three structures listed on the National Historic Register. The Taborian Hospital, the I.T. Montgomery Home and the Charles Banks Building. Knights & Daughters of Tabor owns the Taborian Hospital and the I.T. Montgomery Home. Our mission is to restore and re-use these historic properties that tell the story and exemplify the importance of Mound Bayou. It is our hope that these structures can serve as the catalyst and serve to ignite renewed historic appreciation and community sustainability.
