Supporting Carter G. Woodson National Historic Site

National Park Foundation supports the Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site in Washington, D.C., home of one of history's "fathers of black history."

The Carter G. Woodson Home at 1538 9th Street, NW in Washington, D.C. was the home of the "Father of Black History" from 1915 until his death in 1950. From here, he directed the operations of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) while pursuing his continuous study of African American history. The home is currently closed to the public, as it is in need of restoration, but interpretive and education programs about this great American are available through the Mary McLeod Bethune Council House National Historic Site.

The National Park Foundation provided critical funding to aid in the restoration of the site, ensuring work to stabilize the foundation of the property could continue.
