Our Mission

The Wilson Bruce Evans Home Historical Society is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to the conservation of the Wilson Bruce Evans Home and provision of public space that serves as a community and educational resource focused on the history of the Wilson Bruce Evans family and descendants and promotion of the home’s historical significance as an integral part of the local and wider African American history and culture. The Society will work towards the attainment of these objectives through fundraising, conducting educational programs, providing age-appropriate and scholarly publications, researching the history of Wilson Bruce Evans and his family and working cooperatively with historical societies and other agencies promoting compatible goals.
