The Juneteenth celebration at the historic Hopewell Rosenwald School located in Cedar Creek, just west of Bastrop, will include an open house/tour of the school. There will be a sampling of foods historically enjoyed on this date, like barbecue and potato salad among other refreshments; games for the entire family; a BBQ Cookoff; and former students from throughout the county are invited to share their oral history. With a grant from the National Parks Service, the Hopewell Rosenwald School of Cedar Creek has been restored and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in July 2015

Rosenwald Schools
Booker T. Washington of the Tuskegee Institute and Julius Rosenwald, philanthropist and president of Sears Roebuck, built state-of-the art schools for African-American children across the South. The effort has been called the most important initiative to advance black education in the early 20th century. The Hopewell Rosenwald School-Cedar Creek is one of the more than 5000 built for African American students in the early 1920s.
