Saturday, September 27, 2014 marked a very special day for Historic Jarvisburg Colored School, as the day that the HJCS Museum opened for the first time.

The stories from many former students who attended the Currituck County African American schools prior to de-segregation are being told. They are stories about our heritage in rural Currituck County. They are stories from those who also were encouraged to expand their education and go on to become teachers, school administrators, businessmen, and workers in many trades.

As construction of the visitor support building nears completion in late November 2015, the HJCS Board looks forward to opening the Museum on a planned schedule beginning January 2016.

Please enjoy the photos from our celebration and we look forward to many visits.
