Still on its original site, the Reid's Grove School educated African American students in the Gatesville area. Completed on November 5, 1927 and closed in 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, to educate blacks students during segregation. The building later housed the local North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service office for African Americans and was renamed the Mitchell Building in honor of the Howard Mitchell, the state's first black extension agent.

The building was entered in the National Register of Historic Places, August 30, 2011
