Built in 1927, Ridgeley School is one of 27 schools in Prince George’s County to receive assistance from the Rosenwald Fund. The segregated school served African American children living near Central Avenue until the 1950s. Restored and reopened as a museum in 2011, it is one of the best examples of a Rosenwald School in the County.
