Join us in restoring the historic one-room
Banneker School and preserving it as a living history museum reflecting the conditions of segregation and the influence of African American education in the late 19th Century.

A simple one-room structure, it has connections to Parkville, Park University, the descendants of its earliest students, and serves as an example of a time long past.

The Banneker School Foundation and Historic Site in Parkville, Missouri was formed in 2008. Its goal is ‘to restore the building to its original condition, in as much as it is practical to do so. It is the intent to keep the school at its original location and convert it to a living history museum where learners receive the opportunity for interactive cultural awareness, history, and understanding of the value of diversity.’
