The Fairview-E.S. Brown Restoration Project
The Fairview-E.S. Brown Heritage Corporation seeks to preserve the life-affirming African-American cultural experiences of the early 1900s; namely, the Fairview Colored School located in Cave Spring, GA. The campus was erected under the Julius Rosenwald and Booker T. Washington philanthropic building campaign to provide an education for African-Americans. The only remaining structure, the first grade building, is now in imminent danger of collapsing. Tentative preservation plans include a re-created four-acre campus with museum, campsite, organic garden, and multi-purpose buildings to benefit the entire community. Learn more >>
