Welcome Friends

The Mars Hill Anderson Rosenwald school is one of the original Rosenwald schools constructed in the early part of the century to enable Black children to get an education during segregation.

Built in 1930 in Mars Hill, North Carolina, the school is nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Rehabilitating the School
