Rosenwald School-Edgefield County, South Carolina
I found this photo of a 6-teacher school in Edgefield County in Carter Woodson’s The Rural Negro, but the name of the school was not given, just the county. The Rosenwald Database is down until Summer 2023. According to the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, Edgefield County had two 6-teacher schools, the Edgefield School and the Johnston School. Please let me know if you are able to confirm which one it was.

The Episcopal Church of the Savior-Trenton, South Carolina
The Episcopal Church of Our Savior is one house of worship for The Episcopal Church of the Ridge congregation. The two other churches are the Grace Episcopal Church in Ridge Spring, SC, and Trinity Episcopal Church in Edgefield, SC. The churches rotate church services.
This building is the “newest” of the three churches since it was built in the 1880s. The first church building is no longer standing, but the current sanctuary was consecrated on June 30, 1882, by Bishop William B. W. Howe. The bell tower was added at a later time.
