HISTORY (Research completed by Cheryl Michaels and Janet Ross 2009)
Humphrey Park is located at Buckeye Avenue. At a Recreation Board meeting on July 11, 1988, George Kratt recommended renaming Tilberry Park to Humphrey Park.  It was named in honor of James Humphrey.  James P. Humphrey was a lifelong resident of Shelby County.  He was descended from the Randolph slaves who settled in the area during the 1840s, and he brought their story to those who were interested in local history.  Mr. Humphrey served in City government for several years as a councilman, vice mayor, from 1981 to 1987 was the mayor.  He was also involved in many community organizations, such as Kiwanis, the Salvation Army, and the NAACP.
