The Calfee Community & Cultural Center is revitalizing the legacy of the historic Calfee Training School by serving our community's present needs in order to create a stronger future.

The institution that came to be known as the Calfee Training School first opened its doors in southwest Virginia as a school for African American children in 1894. After the original building burned down, the current facility was built by the Public Works Administration in 1939 and continued to be used as a school for African American children until the Pulaski County Public School system fully desegregated in 1966.

The Calfee Community & Cultural Center is located at 1 Corbin-Harmon Drive in Pulaski, VA.
