Rosenwald Funded

Among the earliest of the more than a dozen
Julius Rosenwald Schools built in Brunswick
County, Saint Paul's Chapel School was constructed
as a one-teacher standard plan in 1920 under
the initial wave of Tuskegee Institute-administered building funds. Contributors included
the Rosenwald Fund ($300), local black families
($450), and public money ($750) for a total of
$1,500. Between 1917 and 1932, the Rosenwald
Fund helped build more than 5,000 African
American schools across the rural South. Former
student Erwin L. Avery restored the school in
2004. It is on the National Register of Historic
Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register.
