About

Constructed in 1926, the Panther Branch Rosenwald School is an excellent example of the Three-Teacher Community School. It is one of only four extant Rosenwald School buildings in Wake County, out of twenty-one that were built from 1921 through 1926, and the only remaining example of the Three-Teacher Community School plan. The Panther Branch Rosenwald School is significant for its contributions to the African-American history of Wake County, and for its association with the educational contributions of the Julius Rosenwald Fund. Panther Branch Rosenwald School is now owned by Juniper Level Missionary Baptist Church.
