Rosenwald Schools - Reflection and Revival!

In 2002, the National Trust for Historic Preservation placed Rosenwald schools on its list of America's 11 most Endangered Historic Places to raise national awareness of Rosenwald schools. In that year the National Trust establlished the Rosenwald Schools Initiative to create a network of Rosenwald school preservationists, develop educational tools, and provide funding to help save Rosenwal schools. It is estimated that only 12 - 15% of the original 5, 357 Rosenwald-funded structures still exist.

To learn more about Rosenwald Schools and the Rosenwald Schools Initiative visit the downstairs of Seneca City Hall to view the Rosenwald Schools display funded in part by the Humanities CouncilSC .
