The CCRSRI purchased the school free and clear of debt in 2019! The Town of Cape Charles donated 6+ acres of land expanding our campus to 8+ acres. We are working to rehabilitate the building for adaptive reuse as a community hub and multifaceted economic resource. As a Rosenwald School, it remains on Preservation Virginia’s Most endangered Historical Places list and is treasured for its brick facade, a rare design feature among Rosenwald schools.
Well aligned with Northampton County's "Livable Communities" concept and the Town of Cape Charles' vision for the Harbor District, CCRSRI developed a strategic plan for the future uses of the school and partnerships are being developed.
Our spaces will include:
Workforce/Job Training Classrooms
Business Incubator Space
Meeting/Presentation/Performance/Special Event Space
Exhibit Area/Artifact Storage
A blighted space full of potential.
A beautiful 120-seat flexible auditorium and stage.
