The late Caroline Baker Allen, Founder and first President of the Carver-Hill Memorial and Historical Society, Inc. provided the leadership that lead to the building of a new Carver-Hill Museum.
After the school was closed in 1969 as part of the county's school integration, alumni association members organized the Carver-Hill Memorial and Historical Society. They first used an old lunchroom building to house a museum and later built a larger brick community center with donated materials and volunteer labor.
The building that currently houses the museum was built in 1997 with funding sources from a variety of government, community and church organizations, as well as individual donations. The museum is the only one of its kind in Okaloosa County, which emphasizes black history. It serves as an archive for artifacts related to Carver-Hill School, such as photos, yearbooks and sports memorabilia, and also contains historical documents of local families and the community.
