At the corner of Hopkins and Phillips Streets and across from Laney High School sits a large single family home built in 1926 and occupied by the Bohler Family. The Bohler family is best known for Lt. Henry Bohler who was an Augusta native and a graduate of the prominent Haines Normal and Industrial Institute. Henry would become the first African American pilot in the United States Military as part of the Tuskegee Airmen. The Bohler family still occupies the home and its condition is fair with the typical attention needed to various systems throughout the house, including a fresh coat of paint. The Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History has remained in contact with the family in an effort to help with preservation of this community landmark and to bring awareness to its rich history and prominent history makers who called Augusta home.
