Jefferson School City Center
Jefferson School City Center opened in January 2013 as Charlottesville's premier intergenerational community center. This restored city landmark, the heart of the city's African American community for generations, is anchored by a new Jefferson School African American Heritage Center and an expanded Carver Recreation Center.

Seven other nonprofit service partners offer exciting educational, health and recreation programs as well as a child-care and senior center at Jefferson. JABA's Vinegar Hill Cafe brings a new dining choice to downtown with an emphasis on fresh local foods at affordable prices.

Jefferson School has always been conveniently located in downtown Charlottesville but is easier than ever to access with improved bus service and ample parking available in a two level garage.

The Jefferson School Foundation and Restoration Partners are grateful for the support of local government and countless citizens who now celebrate the rebirth of Jefferson School as the "Soul of Downtown".
