The Jesse Owens Memorial Park and Museum’s goal is to honor the life and accomplishments of this remarkable man, before and after the Olympics, and to educate the public of the legacy of this Olympic great and his contributions to athletics and humankind. Located in Owens’s birthplace of Oakville, Alabama, JOMP showcases memorials including a museum, bronze statue, mini-theater, 1936 torch replica, birth home replica and an oak tree that was planted as a symbol of Owens’ lost Olympic Gold Medal Tree. The Owens family planted the tree at the park on May 16, 1998.
