Former School Could Become Youth Center
But, the Board of Directors of the George Washington Carver Memorial said it's also working on its own project. Either way, residents want to see the building used wisely.
Resident Zachary Hopkins explained, "We have them in there working hard all day long after school or during the summer, and they're so tired in the evening when they get home, they're not going to want to stand on the corner. They're going to want to go home to bed."
Neighbors plan to meet this Sunday to discuss the future of the building, one of 13 endangered historic sites in Missouri.
