Dry Bridge School.

The use of brick for the construction of the exterior walls and the decorative flourish provided by the pressed tin ceiling in the classrooms distinguishes Dry Bridge from the more typical wood frame Rosenwald Schools, which use beadboard for ceilings and walls.

Dry Bridge School currently houses the MARC Workshop, which worked with DHR to list the school in the Virginia Landmarks Register  (in 2008) and the National Register of Historic Places (in 2009).
