Oliver Spring’s Carmichael Park is the former location of the Oliver Springs Colored School.
Those who want to preserve the school’s memory are getting help from a grant of nearly $45,000 the town received to establish the park.
Edward Jackson and Kelvin Knaff are members of the undeveloped park’s board of directors.
