 We are working to reorganize Second Union Rosenwald School Museum to make it more community friendly and interactive. There is a lot of work to make this happen; therefore, we need your help! The work involves relocating books and artifacts, moving and rearranging furniture, organizing files, being a volunteer docent, and MORE! 

If you have 2-3 hours to spare, please contact us at our e-mail (secondunionrosenwaldschool @gmail.com) 

or call (804) 457-3132 or (804) 457-4930.
