Description:

The R. E. Hunt Museum & Cultural Center is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2011 and supported by alumni, volunteers and friends.

 

R. E. Hunt opened its doors during the late 1950s - educating thousands of African American students during a time when segregation and racism plagued our society. Following school integration in 1971, R. E. Hunt remained a viable educational asset to all students in Columbus, MS - operating until its closure in 2011.

 

Today, R. E. Hunt is preserved as a museum and cultural center and has been designated as a Mississippi Historic Landmark.  Visitors are able to explore the history of education in Columbus on Tuesdays, from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.
