The Historic Jarvisburg Colored School Museum, listed on the National Register for Historic Places, is open to visitors on Wednesdays.
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.
A Taste of Old & New
The HJCS Cookbook, a collection of recipes and stories is available to be purchased at the Museum for $18.

"A great job was done by Jonah Hix and his team of helpers from family, Boy Scouts and parents. The HJCS board is thrilled with the new outdoor options for visitors. Our sincere appreciation to Jonah and best wishes for his Eagle Scout Award."
