Rockville: the one-story Rosenwald School building in front was the first high school for African Americans (1927); the two-story building behind it was the Rockville "colored" elementary school (two rooms, built 1921); the two buildings shared one bathroom. Julius Rosenwald funded some of the first schools for African American communities.
