 November 9th, 2022, construction began on the first floor AND to restore the original name on the building.  Although the building is closed for the public's safety, our operations continue ONLINE.  Visit often.


December 11th, 2022 we celebrated Christmas at Carver on the lawn of The Carver Center.  We honored those who donated to Giving Tuesday, combined with our Holiday/Alumni Lights fundraiser.


Happy to announce our 3rd commemorative calendar:  Being A Citizen.  This forms the foundation for our new traveling exhibit starting in February. 

"Being A Citizen"


What is "citizenship" to you?  How do you show it?

The traveling exhibit invites public discussion.  To schedule the exhibit at your location, email us at carver4cm@gmail.

This exhibit is generously financed by the Power Of Change grant sponsored by Rappahannock Electric Cooperative.
