Full-scale reproduction of an original Rosenwald School

This structure is located on the Anderson Campus of Tri-County Technical College and is a full-scale reproduction of an original Rosenwald School. These schools were part of a massive initiative to provide standardized education for African Americans throughout the South in the early 20th century. This school, designed for one teacher, was built entirely by college students and is a part of a larger Historical Mall project that will eventually have three full-scale outdoor exhibits. The school is meticulously finished with materials as prescribed by the original Rosenwald School plans and has also been furnished with many period-appropriate original antiques, tools and teaching materials. In addition, it has museum quality display panels/pictures that explain Rosenwald Schools and their vital role in American history. 

The school is open by appointment on weekdays. Please call for more information.
