The Havre de Grace Colored School

The Havre de Grace Colored School

The Havre de Grace Colored School holds a special distinction as the first public high school for African American students in Harford County, Maryland. The initial portion of the school was built in 1912 and served as an elementary school for African-American children. In 1930, as a result of parental prayers and petitions, the county expanded the building to accommodate a high school.

More than just brick and mortar, the 109-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.
