Spady Museum New Kids Cultural Clubhouse

. January 18, 2011 . 0 Comments

Next door to the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum, construction crews are transforming the historic Munnings Cottage into the new Kids Cultural Clubhouse for children – and adults – to enjoy. What was once just a wooden frame will be a community hub for culture, education and fun!

Soon, the Clubhouse will be surrounded by a pathway of bricks inscribed with the names of supporters who want to be part of the Spady Museum for generations to come.

The Spady Cultural Heritage Museum, a non-profit organization at 170 NW Fifth Avenue in the historic West Settlers District of Delray Beach, is dedicated to discovering, collecting and sharing the African-American history and heritage of Florida. Located in the former home of the late Solomon D. Spady, the most prominent African American educator and community leader in Delray Beach from 1922 to 1957, the museum opened in July 2001 and is the only African American Cultural Heritage museum of its kind in Palm Beach County.

Through its Kids Cultural Club, the museum conducts community outreach programs for youngsters; it has also produced two documentaries, Colored Town, and African American Neighborhoods of Old Delray Beach that are available to the community.

For more information about the S.D. Spady Cultural Heritage Museum, visit the museum on Northwest Fifth Avenue in downtown Delray Beach, one and a half blocks north of Atlantic Avenue, or call the museum at 561-279-8883.
