Rosenwald Consolidated School — Society Hill, South Carolina

SC Picture Project  |  Darlington County  |  Rosenwald Consolidated School

This brick building in Society Hill was constructed in 1930 as the Rosenwald Consolidated School. Between 1917 and 1932, over 5,000 schools were built in the rural South to educate African-American children. They were called Rosenwald Schools in honor of Julius Rosenwald, then-president of Sears and Roebuck, who provided funds to assist in their construction.
