Carver-Hill School Historical Marker

The Late Mr. Samuel Allen was on hand to help Mr. J. C. Connor, chief information officer for the Okaloosa School District, unveil a historical marker commemorating the site for the former Caver-Hill High School, which now serves as the Carver-Hill Administration Complex for the Okaloosa County School District.

Mr. Allen and his late wife Caroline Baker Allen spent a large part of their lives and teaching careers teaching at Carver-Hill High School. They taught at Carver-Hill from the time it opened in 1954 until it closing in 1969 and could hear the school bell ring fro their near by home where he still lives today! The historical marker means a whole lot to Mr. Allen and the many proud Carver-Hill High School Alumni that also attended the proud unveiling.

In recent years, the Carver-Hill Administration Complex has been renovated.  Okaloosa County Superintendent of Schools, Alexis Tibbets credited Mr. J. C. Connor for convincing the school district to renovate the Carver-Hill site.

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center,The Legacy Museum, Harriet Beecher Stowe House and The National Museum of African American History and Culture 

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is a museum of conscience, an education center, a convener of dialogue, and a bea­con of light for inclusive freedom around the globe.

It is physically located in downtown Cincinnati just a few steps from the banks of the Ohio River, the great natural barrier that separated the slave states of the South from the free states of the North. Since opening in 2004, it has filled a substantial void in our nation’s cultural heritage. Rooted in the stories of the Underground Railroad, it illuminates the true meaning of inclusive freedom by presenting permanent and special exhibits that inspire, public programming that provoke dialogue and action, and educational resources that equip modern abolitionists.

The Legacy Museum:  From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration is situated on a site in Montgomery where enslaved people were once warehoused.  A block from one of the most prominent slave auction spaces in America, the Legacy Museum is steps away from an Alabama dock and rail station where tens of thousands of black people were trafficked during the 19th century.  

The Harriet Beecher Stowe House celebrates the life, family, and legacy of author and activist Harriet Beecher Stowe. Harriet is primarily known for her book, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, and its contributions to the Civil War. 

Located in the historic neighborhood of Walnut Hills in Cincinnati, OH, the Harriet Beecher Stowe House hosts educational tours, lectures, and readings.  

The National Museum of African American History and Culture is a Smithsonian Institution museum located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., in the United States. It was established in December 2003 and opened its permanent home in September 2016 with a ceremony led by President Barack Obama.
