The Fairfax Rosenwald School of "Fairfax Colored School" was constructed in 1925-26 on this site. It replaced an earlier African-American school on Main Street east of the Fairfax Cemetery. In 1917, Julius Rosenwald, president of Sears, Roebuck & Co., formed the Julius Rosenwald Fund, a philanthropic foundation that funded construction of over 5,000 schools for African-Americans across the rural south between 1917 and 1932. The Fairfax Roselwald School was one of four such schools built in Fairfax County. It was demolished in 1951 and replaced by Eleven Oaks School.
