Ridgeley Week

Monday, September 18, 2017

The school will be open for tours from 11 am to 3 pm for the entire week.

Come out and celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Ridgeley Rosenwald School, a milestone in African-American education and historic preservation in Prince George's County. Built in 1927, Ridgeley School is one of 27 schools in Prince George’s County to receive assistance from the Rosenwald Fund which donated over $70 million to public schools, colleges and universities, museums, Jewish charities, and black institutions before funds were completely depleted in 1948. The segregated school served African American children living near Central Avenue until the 1950s.

This week will include fun and educational activities for all ages. 

Ages: All ages are welcome
