Friendship School

  • 7600 Humie Olive Rd.
    Apex, NC 27502

Of 20+ Rosenwald schools built in Wake County prior to 1932, only five, including this school, are visible today. Called a national treasure, these now-aging school buildings once served African-American children throughout the segregated, rural South. Friendship School, receiving a grant from Rosenwald circa 1923-1924, was of the two-teacher type: it operated into the early 1950s. It was then completely remodeled to serve as a private residence. View from street; not open to the public.
