    Subject: Concord Rosenwald School near Henderson

    Photographer's Note:
    "We took Hwy 84, then turned North on FM 95. The school is on the right hand side of the road with all the brush cleared around it. Next to the school is another building that has caved in, maybe an add on at one time? (see picture 10)

    Former students of this African American school are trying to raise funds to restore it. Their site can be found here - http://chsaa-rosenwald.org. The doors are boarded up, but some boards had come loose. Fortunately I had a spotlight with me to light some of the rooms. I treaded carefully as the floor has large holes in some areas.

    I am unfamiliar with this area, but did notice there are a few old and/or abandoned structures along FM 95." - Maryanne Gobble, 2011
