The Great Branch Rosenwald Teacherage is one of only eight teachers' homes built in South Carolina under the Rosenwald school building program. It is the only one that has been restored to reflect the era. The home was built in 1924-25 at a time when education for African Americans was more than substandard, and sat on the grounds with a six -room school and shop. All other buildings are extant. Visitors to the site will see artifacts from the school and era as well as furnished rooms that reflect the period. The house provided housing for principals who worked in the school and their families.
