Second Union Rosenwald School Museum Corp, Inc is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the intense commitment of rehabilitating Second Union School.
In 2009, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Lowe's announced the second round of grants from a joint initiative to rehabilitate iconic schools that represent an important chapter in United States history. Second Union School is one of the places to begin the rehabilitation process with the second round of funds. Funds came from three sources: the Rosenwald fund, African American citizens, and public contributions. Once rehabilitated, the building will be used as a museum dedicated to the history of Black Education in Goochland County. The Goochland County Historical Society continues to support the rehabilitation effort.
The mission of the Second Union Rosenwald School Museum is to preserve, highlight, and inspire people to learn about American History from various points of view that include the struggles and educational progress from slavery to desegregation.
