Rosenwald Schools Documented
in the Files of the
North Carolina State Historic Preservation Office
January 24, 2005

This list initially was compiled by intern Kate Phillips in the summer of 2002 by culling NC HPO survey files in Raleigh. Because Ms. Phillips was not able to travel to Asheville, where files on the 25 western counties are stored, this list currently includes few western schools. Staff plans to review the western files as soon as time and funding permit. Beginning in November 2003, HPO staff has expanded the list with entries for files compiled with material submitted after August 2002, when the HPO and the N. C. Rosenwald Schools Community Project began sponsoring a statewide survey by volunteers dedicated to identifying North Carolina's Rosenwald schools. Many of the pre-existing files have been augmented by survey volunteers, while other post-August 2002 files were created by staff, consultants, or interested citizens independent of the statewide Rosenwald schools survey.

All of the following were schools for African Americans. A number of the schools already in HPO files prior to the summer of 2002, however, have not been documented as Rosenwald schools, although there is a strong likelihood that they were built with Rosenwald Fund monies or their designs were influenced by standard Rosenwald school plans. For these properties, further research is required to confirm the association with the Rosenwald Fund.

This list will be updated periodically as additional information is received. Information on additional Rosenwald schools and corrections to this list should be submitted to Claudia Brown, N. C. State Historic Preservation Office, 4617 Mail Service Station, Raleigh, NC 27699-4617.
