Carnegie Center is Currently Closed | Hours

Attention educators! To serve students during distance learning, the Carnegie Center now offers a totally virtual Historian for a Day program with a custom website, videos, art activity, and live interactive storytelling session! Students learn about the Underground Railroad and discover the story of Lucy Higgs Nichols, a celebrated Civil War nurse who escaped enslavement. Based on our permanent exhibition, Remembered: The Life of Lucy Higgs Nichols, this experience is completely free.
