Historic Schools

In 1995, the African American Heritage Preservation Foundation was part of the Advisory Council to a historic preservation project in Cape May, New Jersey. The Center for Community Arts, Inc. announced that the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Historic Preservation Office confirmed that the Franklin Street School in Cape May is a contributing element of the New Jersey and National Register-listed Cape May Historic District. In issuing their "certification of eligibility," the state has recognized the school's local significance in African American History.
