The Okaloosa Negro Civic Club established a neighborhood park in the early 1950s. When a new school was built in 1954, Carver-Hill, the old one-room frame lunchroom building was given to the Civic Club by the Okaloosa County School Board. Enlarged and renovated, it became the Carver-Hill Museum, operated by the Carver-Hill Memorial and Historical Society, Inc. Now focusing on black history, the Carver-Hill Museum serves as an archive for artifacts related to Carver-Hill School. In addition, the museum features important historical documents of local families and the community.
