The Beulah Rucker Museum and Education Center was originally formed to be a school for the African-American population in the region of Georgia where there was only a limited formal educational opportunities for the citizens of the area.
Born in Banks County Georgia in 1888, Beulah Rucker Oliver attended a small wooden church school when she was small and then went to Jeruel High School in Athens and Knox Institute as she grew older. Later on Beulah Rucker graduated from the Knox Institute in 1909 with honors. The devotion of teaching has never faded in her life since she was young.
In the late 1950?s, Beulah Rucker formed a school for African-American children that continued to assist the students in different forms through her own hard work and funding. Today, the museum is dedicated to preserve the African-American heritage and promoting awareness of the contributions and personal sacrifices of Ms. Beulah Rucker Oliver.
The mission of Beulah Rucker Museum and Education Center is to memorialize the life of this great African-American woman and recognizing the important role that she played in local education while increasing public awareness of her contributions to Gainesville and Hall County through educational, religious, economic, social and civic activities that enhance the quality of community life.
