The Booker T. Washington Community Center is a community center at 1114 West Johnson Street in Staunton, Virginia. It is located in the former Booker T. Washington High School for Coloreds, a two-story Art Deco brick building designed by Raymond V. Long and built in 1936. A 1960 addition to the rear of the building has a more Modern treatment. It was the Staunton area's only high school for African-American students for thirty years, and one of its few meeting points for African-American organizations until the city's public facilities were integrated. The school was closed in 1966, and was used by the Staunton Police Department from 1967 to 1986.
