It was a time of prayer and pride for the Nelson T. Gant Foundation Sunday afternoon...as the group dedicated the home of Nelson T. Gant to the city of Zanesville. Gant, a former slave, perservered during the height of racial prejudice to become a self-made millionaire. The Foundation, which has overcome many obstacle to obtain the hosue, wants to share Gant's legacy with the community. The Gant Homestead served as a stop for slaves escaping to freedom through the Underground Railroad.
