Reid’s Grove Rosenwald School

Still on its original site, the Reid’s Grove School educated African American students. Completed on November 5, 1927 and closed in December 1951, it was one of seven schools in Gates County (and one of over 800 in North Carolina) financed by Julius Rosenwald, president of Sears, Roebuck and Company, in collaboration with Booker T. Washington, African-American Educator, to educate black students during segregation. The building was entered in the National Register of Historic Places, August 30, 2011. A photo collection of Gates County Rosenwald Schools is displayed in the hallway of the building along with a historical summary of Rosenwald schools.
