  • This was a wonderful yet insightful tour. Ranger Spencer and her staff were so knowledgeable and gave our group an in depth account of the Brown decision and how it has impacted integration. I was very impressed and grateful for the opportunity to be in the presence of a school that was part of such a landmark decision that changed Black America. The school has been well preserved with lots of historic timelines for those who are self guided.
  • This site is incredibly well done. I was particularly captivated by the Auditorium presentation and the room displaying the 5 cases in the Brown decision. These were both very powerful presentations on the Civil Rights movement and the Brown v Board case. Our Park ranger Mynesha was amazing! Very helpful and knowledgeable. Bravo guys!
  • A very well done historic site, with loads of information, more than we had time for! The building itself is lovely and perfectly preserved, and the rangers posted inside were eager to answer questions. Good for a brief visit or a multi-hour in-depth journey, this stop is worth your attention!
  • It was a cute little museum. Some of the electronics were broken, but there was still plenty of information. Easy parking.
  • This was an incredibly eye opening experience. Everything is perfectly organized so the amount of information isn't overwhelming. We even had the opportunity to witness a Nationalization ceremony for new citizens. They've got a great book/gift store with good products for adults and kids.
