Remembered and Recognized

The 90th Anniversary Celebration of the Fairview School

A historic event came to fruition on the weekend of November 6-8, 2013 when the Fairview-E.S.Brown School in Cave Spring celebrated its 90th birthday. The school, one of four buildings that stood on a Rosenwald campus is located in Floyd County. Hundreds of people including Georgia’s Attorney General, Sam Olens, lengendary Atlanta news anchor, Monica Kaufman Pearson, alumni, friends, university scholars, noted authors and family members of Booker T. Washington and Julius Rosenwald came from far and wide to pay tribute to the school that gave this small community a sense of pride and purpose. Now, the restoration of this modest school will begin.

This reimagined building will house a museum and a place where today’s school children can see how students in the 1920-1950’s learned far more than their ABC’s. The campus will feature farm to table gardens that will give children the experience of planting vegetables and other staples that were essential in rural communities. During the weekend former students talked about the life lessons they learned and how Fairview prepared them for a future that was to change beyond anyone’s imagination.
