Historic Rosenwald School Once Thought Demolished is Found

Historic Rosenwald School Once Thought Demolished is Found

A school building that Preservation Virginia mistakenly thought was lost was recently found. During an ATV ride through the woods of Mecklenburg County, Heather Minter and her family came across a school building near Boydton, Virginia. She provided photographs to Preservation Virginia, and after researching the images and the location, we determined that it was the Shiloh Rosenwald School.

Shiloh School was a two-teacher school built in 1923 which we previously thought had been demolished. It was one of 17 Rosenwald Schools built in Mecklenburg County, of which nine remain standing.
