Refurbishment of The George Washington Carver Museum
Tuskegee Institute National Historic site plans to conduct rehabilitation work at the George Washington Carver Museum. The project will address deteriorated interior architectural finishes installed after 1947 on the upper floor of the museum where plaster and paint are cracking, delaminating, and/or blistering as identified in the park's Historic Structure Report (2019). Rehabilitation will follow the treatment plan in this report and the Secretary of Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.
The preservation project will take place with a youth partner organization and is anticipated to begin in the fall of 2019. The youth partner will organize seven (7) work sessions, each 16 days in length. Forty (40) volunteers seeking construction or historic preservation experience will be recruited from the local community, nonprofits, and nearby university.
The National Park Service encourages you to submit comments on this project or express interest in volunteering by October 30, 2019 by clicking on the "Open for Public Comment" link on the left side of the screen.
