revive carver center & higbee street school
What's going on?
This project, located within the Belvidere Area of the Trenton Historic Development Collaborative (THDC) Neighborhood, is funded by the Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit Program (NRTC), via the State of New Jersey and the City of Trenton.
For decades, the “Carver Y” was a popular social hub for neighborhood parties and games. It has since fallen on hard times due to funding and repairs needed.
Higbee Street (Nixon) School
Built in 1856, it was the first school in Trenton built specifically for black children and has sat vacant for decades.
How Can I get involved?
