Foundation receives award from City of Hampton

Board members Richard and Nancy Moore receive the Clean City Commission award on behalf of the Foundation.

This is the second time the Foundation received this award from the City of Hampton.

Our Federation House added to the list of Most Endangered Historic Places

Each May — National Historic Preservation Month — Preservation Virginia releases a list of historic places across the Commonwealth facing imminent or sustained threats. The list, which has brought attention to 170 sites in Virginia, encourages individuals, organizations, and local and state governments to advocate for their preservation and find solutions that will save these unique locations for future generations. The program has a track record of success. Only 10% of the sites listed so far were lost to demolition or neglect.

Make a donation through the PGA TOUR's 'Birdies For Charity' program and we'll get a bonus

Your gift through the Dominion Energy Charity Classic's Birdies for Charity program presented by TowneBank means that the organization you select will receive your gift plus an additional 10%.

Each PGA TOUR tournament is an opportunity to give back to your community in one of three ways – attending an event, volunteering, or donating money. Not-for-profit tournaments under the PGA TOUR umbrella donate their net proceeds to support local organizations, totaling more than $3.64 billion in donations to date. These tournaments wouldn’t be possible without the 100,000 volunteers annually who commit their time to ensure each event is a success.

May is National Historic Preservation Month!

Watch a new documentary about
the history of Aberdeen Gardens

From the Daily Press:

Three years ago, playwright, author and Hampton native David Bar III embarked on a journey to create a documentary about the historic Aberdeen Gardens neighborhood in Hampton.

Now, The Aberdeen 158: Built for Us, By Us is finally complete.

The Foundation is a recipient of the City of Hampton Cemetery Matching Funds Program!

Funds will be used in preservation care of historic Civil War-era cemeteries in the city of Hampton!

The Barrett-Peake Heritage Foundation envisions preserving historic sites and venues in the city of Hampton, by upgrading and securing signage for historic cemeteries and develop new educational and cultural initiatives at the former Virginia School for Deaf, Blind and Multi-Disabled at Hampton.

Our vision for the historic Federation House is to create a 1920s museum and cultural center for the community. We aim to keep the history of African Americans alive in the city of Hampton.
