Rosenwald Hall

Rosenwald Hall

Rosenwald Hall, a rectangular red-brick building with white clapboard sections, served the community of Lima, Oklahoma, from 1921 to 1966.

During this period it was Lima’s only elementary school. Lima, one of twenty-nine all-Black towns founded in Oklahoma before statehood (twenty-five in the Indian Territory and four in the Oklahoma Territory), is one of only three such towns in existence.

Rosenwald Hall is on the National Register of Historic Places.
