    Teacher Free Day

    September 16, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

    The Dorothy Davidson Rosenwald Schoolhouse is officially open for public viewing starting today, September 16th! In celebration, we are inviting all teachers to enjoy free admission to our Historic Park.

    Begun in 1912, Rosenwald schools were built through a partnership between Julius Rosenwald, a Jewish philanthropist and president of Sears, Roebuck & Co., and black educator Booker T. Washington, along with support from the local black and white communities. Between 1913 and 1932, nearly 5,000 new schools were built in 15 states and thousands of students received an education, learned trades and skills, and were awarded better opportunities as a result of this education. We are thrilled to continue this tradition of providing vital educational experiences and preserving the rich history of these schoolhouses.
