Woodville School is an important monument to Gloucester County and the African American community who strove to ensure quality education for their children in the early 20th century. Julius Rosenwald, president of Sears, Roebuck and Company, aided these efforts by establishing a fund in 1918 to help communities address African-American educational needs throughout the South. Rosenwald funds helped build Woodville School in 1923, replacing an earlier school on the same site. Woodville School is an irreplaceable landmark for the Gloucester community, a legacy of education for all children.
