Honoring the Tuskegee Airmen

Historic Fort Steuben invites you to join us as we gather with members of the community to honor two men from Steubenville who served during World War II as part of the famed Tuskegee Airmen.

A new mural depicting Jerome and John "Ellis" Edwards will be dedicated on Sunday, September 29 at 2pm. Artist Ruston Baker spent months researching the history of the group and weeks painting the 30' by 90' mural along Washington Street in the historic downtown.
