Gov. Wolf Unveils Monument Honoring 8th Ward

K. Leroy Irvis Building Lawn, 4th and Walnut Streets, Harrisburg, PA 17125

Governor Tom Wolf will join state and local elected and community leaders to dedicate a bronze monument to Harrisburg’s Old 8th Ward. The new monument honors the legacy of the Old 8th Ward, a Black neighborhood in Harrisburg of nearly 1,100 homes that was razed to make way for the Capitol complex expansion in the early 1900s.
