Rosenwald Consolidated School / Rosenwald High School
The Julius Rosenwald Consolidated School, built in 1930, was one of almost 500 schools in South Carolina funded in part by the Julius Rosenwald Foundation during the early twentieth century. A frame industrial education building was added in 1936. When the school opened it included grades 1-10, grade 11 was added in 1939 and grade 12 in 1948. In 1953, during the state school equalization campaign meant to forestall desegregation, Rosenwald Consolidated School became a high school and a new Rosenwald Elementary School was built. The high school closed in 1982.
