BURLEY SCHOOL ATHLETIC FIELD RENOVATION
BURLEY RESTORATION PROJECT
Jackson P. Burley Middle School on Charlotteville’s Rose Hill Drive is named after an esteemed local African-American educator and community leader. The school opened in 1951, serving both the City of Charlottesville and neighboring Albemarle County as the sole African-American high school during segregation. For 16 years, Burley High School served as a center and focal point of African-American culture and community in the greater Charlottesville area.
