Lee-Buckner Rosenwald to Celebrate Anniversary

Celebrate close to 100 years at the last remaining Rosenwald school in Williamson County.

The Heritage Foundation invites the public to the 95th anniversary of the Lee-Buckner Rosenwald School on Saturday, March 19 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Franklin Grove Estates and Gardens (423 Margin Street, Franklin).

In preparation for the event, they are asking the community to share their stories and help them document the retelling and history of Williamson County’s African American schools.

As the Heritage Foundation works to save the school, they want to learn more from former students as they plan to move to Franklin Grove. If you have any photos or artifacts that you would like to share from the school, they are accepting donations.

RSVP to Rachel Finch at rfinch@williamosnheritage.org. For more information, visit williamsonheritage.org/portfolio-posts/lee-buckner-schoolhouse.
