Celebrating African-American history in Waynesboro, this by appointment only museum houses a small but rich collection that weaves a tapestry of revered figures in the community. Waynesboro's Rosenwald School was one of many built across the south through a patnership between Julius and Booker T. Washington in what has been called the most important initiative to advance black education in the early 20th century. Be sure to call to get a first hand look at the historical significance Waynesboro's African-American community had in shaping the city.
