Douglass School Project is a non profit organization. We are repairing and renovating Douglass School in Higginsville, Missouri. This school served the African American population of Higginsville and surrounding areas from 1886-1955. The ultimate goal is to establish a learning center and museum to preserve African American history of Higginsville and Lafayette County. Please help with your tax deductible donation.


The black community has a tremendous heritage in the town and the area of the A.M.E. Church, Douglass School, and the church parsonage would depict quite well the hardships, victories, and long-time spiritual center.
