This month's Southern Living magazine features a four-page spread on Rock Hill's Carroll School.
The 80-year-old school house is one of many built in the early 1900s with grant money from a fund started by Julius Rosenwald, president of Sears Roebuck and Co., and Booker T. Washington.
These Rosenwald schools represented hope for a better future for African American children, empowering families through education.
Today, most of the few remaining Rosenwald school houses sit empty. But some are being refurbished as historic sites and destinations to reconnect with the past.
The Southern Living piece profiles four Rosenwald schools: The Carroll School, the Braden-Sinai School near Memphis, Tenn; the Shiloh School in Notasulga, Ala.; the Smithville School in southwest Georgia.
