On May 3, 2008, the Legacy Garden was created at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum in St. Petersburg. “Pave the Way” is a brick campaign dedicated to supporting the Legacy Garden and the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum. Bricks with your name and/or company will be engraved and placed into the pathway throughout the garden. You may also purchase a brick in memory or honor of a loved one.
The Leadership Class of 2008 raised more than $40,000 in donations to provide 13,000 brick pavers, 1,200 plants, sod, mulch, irrigation and fencing. The garden now offers a beautiful outdoor space that serves as a centerpiece for the Jordan Park neighborhood.
With more than 400 bricks sponsored, a stroll along the meandering pathways includes a search for the names for family and friends. Bricks are available for “Pave-the-Way” sponsorships by calling the museum at 727-323-1104.
