We Need Your Help!

Help us meet our fundraising goal to restore and preserve the historic Havre de Grace Colored School! More than just brick and mortar, the 100-year-old historic school building symbolizes the lives and legacies of those ancestors who fiercely advocated for better educational opportunities for African-American students. The building tells a story of their determination and perseverance.


Once completed, The Havre de Grace Colored School Museum and Cultural Center (HCSMCC) will celebrate the legacy of those that advocated for equitable access to education for African American students in Harford County. The 110-year-old Colored School began as a two-room structure serving primary grade students and later expanded to become the first public school in Harford County that provided high school education to African American students.
