The Historic Jarvisburg Colored School is the oldest African American school in North Carolina. Currently being restored, the HJCS is to become a museum that will depict the history of education of all African American students in Currituck County from the late 1830s until 1950. The school will represent more than just education of African American children; it will historically represent family life in Currituck at that time. Educating African American students during this time revolved around the agricultural growth of Currituck County as well. The HFCS Board anticipates tourists, including public school and college students, from surrounding counties and throughout North Carolina to visit the site to learn of its historical significance. Visitors will view artifacts and learn the history and the progress of an inclusive community and county.
