Housed African American school principals and teachers, now has a welcome center, artifact and research room

The Great Branch Rosenwald Teacherage was one of eight homes built in SC to house principals and teachers who taught in the Great Branch Rosenwald School. The home was built in 1924 and reamins the only in-tact home in SC built during the era of providing educational facilities for African Americans. The school was built in 1921 and burned by arsonists in the early 60's. The restored home has a welcome center, artifact room and a student research room.
