The Kittrell-Wilson Cemetery Restoration Fund
This cemetery is where the bodies of the Rosenwald School founders and primary caregivers are buried. 50% of the Funds raised will help repair the overgrown 1/4 mile access trail from Rosenwall Road to the Cemetery gate; renovate the headstones and purchase headstones for folk who are missing a marker (Ironically,we discovered that the school's founder, John Wesley Wilson, does not have a marker on his grave) . The project also helps repurpose the old Rosenwald School grounds for an earth-friendly, zero-emission, atmospheric water generated, solar-powered multigenerational family homestead!
