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 last winter's deep snow and temperature extremes.
Credo is in need of restoration work, and you may have noticed it missing from Hampton's courthouse lawn. 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 will be repaired, the benches will have a new, weather-proof covering, and artist Kathy Hooper will touch up the paint. Later in the spring, a better, healthier-looking memorial will be back at its permanent resting place on the historic Kings County Courthouse lawn.
To provide an ongoing tribute to John Peters Humphrey by educating individuals of all ages about his life and accomplishments; to provide a venue to learn about John Peters Humphrey and his work; and to educate people about human rights.
