"Stephen Collins Foster, as youth, visited here, May 1833. His uncle Dr. Joseph S. Tomlinson was then President of Augusta College. The musical, harmonious voices from the old Negro church on the hill floated softly over the town. "It can hardly be doubted" Foster was impressed by these since he "put into song at a later time the sorrow their voices reflected.""
