Do you know of a Rosenwald School?

DHR has an ongoing project to inventory all of Virginia’s Rosenwald Schools. As of May 2010, the department had determined the location of 62 of our 364 school buildings.

If you know of a Rosenwald school in your area or you want information about listing a Rosenwald school in the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places, please contact Kristin Kirchen at  (804) 367-2323, ext. 111.
