The "American Dream" schoolhouse exhibit highlights the high value that some of our Florida Pioneers placed upon ensuring the development of literacy and conventional education for the formerly enslaved African American children in Florida. The historic, one-room schoolhouse itself, where esteemed educators Robert Murray and Costella Williams taught, clearly defines a part of this era and the ambitious nature of former students like Dr. David Anderson and Mrs. Marian Carpenter.
