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.
