Scrabble School Preservation Foundation


Built in 1921 and operational until 1968, Scrabble School is just one of more than 5,000 African-American schools built across the South with the help of Julius Rosenwald and Booker T. Washington. Now the National Trust for Historic Preservation lists Rosenwald Schools among America’s “most endangered” places. Scrabble School is one of the few that is restored and open to the public. An interactive exhibit at the school is based on the stories of those who lived our nation’s history. The building operates as a Senior Center Monday-Thursday (10-2). Visitors are welcome to visit the self-guided exhibit during those hours. Guided tours are by appointment only. Scrabble School is located at 111 Scrabble Road in Castleton, VA. Visit the website for more information & a virtual tour of the exhibit.
