John j. wright museum

The John J. Wright Educational and Cultural Center Museum was formally opened on September 9, 2010. Among the elegant alumni ribbon cutters was our oldest alumni, Mrs. Christine Garnett Chapman, valedictorian of the class of 1935!

We are fortunate to have a museum that tells the story of African American education in Spotsylvania County from the 1870's through integration and the school's closing as a middle school in 2006. The museum is by no means complete and will continue to develop. In order to maintain this important gift, we must support it by memberships, donations volunteer time and visits. Artifacts, records and documents pertaining to John J Wright School are welcomed.

OUR ALMA MATER

We love thee so, our deal old school
We must shed forth our thoughts
We'll fight for thee with loyalty
And spirit for which you fought

Our fears are dashed, our hopes are raised
Our faith in you will stand
Thy guiding light and rays are bright
May your cause never wane
