The Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History preserves the legacy of educator Lucy Craft Laney through art, history and the preservation of her home.


The museum’s four season garden, adjoining the Snypse-Allen House and Laney Museum, features fruit and nut bearing trees, as well as old fashion southern favorites, magnolia, dogwood and the iconic hydrangea. Several varieties of camellias bloom through spring. Fragrant flowers and herbs grace the walkways, as a reminder of the customs of the former residents of the neighborhood. However, there are currently dead spaces in some areas of the gardens where plants/shrubs have died and areas where weeds have taken over the garden. This project focuses on beautification of the gardens (weeding, planting new flowers, shrubs and applying mulch to all areas.
