Legacy Garden

The Legacy Garden at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum is a sprawling vista complete with magnolias, a flowing fountain, a rose garden and brick pathways. It is the result of a collaborative venture between the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership St. Pete Class of 2008, the city’s Midtown Economic Development Initiative and the museum.

In addition to being a revenue generator for the museum, resources from the garden’s rental will help with the expansion of exhibits and displays.
