  • HistoryALCA was founded in 1981 and reorganized in 2007

    Our primary mission was to preserve the former Trinity High School, Limestone Countys only all-black high school before integration, and Fort Henderson, the Union fort used during the American Civil War

    Our board is composed of 11 members who are active in our community

  • Trinitys HistoryTrinity High School was opened from 1865-1970

    It was a private school for many years and then transitioned to a public school that was under the direction of Limestone County Schools

    After the school closed, it was used for a few years and then fell into a dilapidated state

    ALCA then decided to repair the building to be used for a community center

  • Trinity High School Through the Years

  • Trinity Faculty

  • Trinity Students

  • Trinity Graduates

    ALCA saw fit to turn this building from a blight on our community to a resource for everyone.
