Located in a historic Victorian frame house, this local history museum offers programs and exhibits that showcase the history and contributions of African Americans throughout and beyond Denver's Five Points neighborhood. The Center is the result of the efforts of its namesake, Grace Stiles, a retired public school teacher who created a successful local history program called African American History on Wheels in 1992.
