BPF RenovationsFeb2017The 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.

An Unveiling of Historic Significance

On Sunday, May 20, 2018, we unveiled two new historic markers at the historic headquarters of the 1908 Virginia Federation of Colored Women's Clubs. 

The event was a complete success with Mayor Tuck, Senator Mamie Locke, Delegate Jeion Ward, and U. S. Congressman Robert 'Bobby' Scott, Councilman Will Moffett in attendance. Minister Larry Gibson provided the Invocation and Blessing of the Marker.
