History Evolving: George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center

Updated: May 22, 2018

May 18, 2018 - Phoenix, AZ

On the way back from downtown Phoenix today, we ran into this developing treasure simply because I looked up at the right time to see a small sign on the side of the road driving south along 3rd Street toward Buckeye. The George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center is housed in what was the Phoenix Union Colored High School from 1923 to 1943, later becoming Carver High School from 1943 to 1954. In recent years, the building was bought by alumni from the school to facilitate its development into the museum and cultural center.

Please enjoy the various slideshows below. I have tried to divide them into photos by room or exhibit. Of note, many of the exhibits in this emerging center are not yet labeled, but will be in the future.
