MACON CO., AL (WSFA) – A piece of history in Macon County is being preserved in a big way.

The historic Shiloh Rosenwald School was first built in 1913. It was one of the first six schools built to provide quality educational opportunities for African Americans.

Dorothy Moseley still remembers her time as a student at Shiloh Rosenwald School.

“This school was a hall of learning,” said Moseley.

After closing in 1964, it has now reopened its doors as a permanent museum exhibit.

“They can see where we have come from. It was a long journey and it was a struggle,” said Moseley.
