National Park Service

Today, the role of the National Park Service at the Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site is to tell the story of Woodson’s crusade while preserving his home for future generations.

We can’t achieve our mission single-handedly. It is only through partnerships with like-minded organizations that we can preserve the past and build a vision for the future.
