Green Valley Remembered and Preserved is a kick-off fundraiser to support the historic preservation of Nauck's History and Heritage. On display will be a collection of papers, photographs and memorabilia that is being preserved and shared as a historic preservation project. The collections feature John Robinson, Churches that migrated from Freedman’s Village in 1866, the work of the Nauck Civic Association, Bridge Builders of Nauck and the overall history on development and happenings in the African American Community of Nauck, established in 1844.
This proposal therefore seeks investment to develop a ‘preservation’ infrastructure. Funds will be used to:
Digitize, organize and preserve more than 150 years of past paper records in an effort to capture its remarkable narrative.
- Partner with Arlington County to develop a physical ‘museum’ infrastructure at Nauck Town Square to celebrate community history and highlight its most notable residents and businesses.
- Preserve the past but nurture the future. Funds will be used to organize inter-community meetups and events to foster conversations with other Arlington civic associations and encourage community learning and partnerships in development.
