Highlights:  display of Madison advocates for Carver in the 1940s; music as a characteristic of Carver's success featuring Madison-born John "Dykes" Hunter, Edward "Skip" Gordon (Orange county native) and others who started a band while in high school (1957) called The Jazz Hoppers, performing throughout the region - including on the Milt Grant show in Washington, DC (while still in high school.)  Their instruments will also be on display (professionally played for many years after their 1959 graduation).

Who we are:

The George Washington Carver Regional High School opened in Culpeper County, Virginia, in October 1948, with more than 400 minority students from the

4-county region including Culpeper, Orange, Madison and Rappahannock.  When full school integration was implemented in 1968, it closed.  Its last enrollment had less than 15 students. 


Dedicated former students organized to form the George Washington Carver Regional High School Alumni Association.  They fulfill their mission of educating the public through our signature programs which include scholarships and the Carver 4-County Museum.
