& Clarke County African-American Cultural Center

Clarke County’s African American heritage and history are preserved and celebrated through the restoration of the Josephine City School as a museum and cultural center. Located in Clark County’s county seat of Berryville, this reconstruction-era schoolhouse serves as a powerful beacon of hope and self-determination. The one-story, two-room frame building was originally constructed in 1882; and for more than a hundred years has been the cornerstone of the proud self-contained community of Josephine City. Both the Josephine City School and Josephine City are on the Virginia and National Registers of Historic Places.

The community invites you and your family to come and visit the museum. Filled with a replica of a circa 1900 classroom, a colorful model of Josephine City circa 1930, photos, displays and artifacts, the museum will be a wonderful, fun-filled, educational experience.
