Midway Historic Architectural Details - 0 views

  • 124 East Main - Historic Midway Midway Store Erected in 1882 as The Central Saloon by Henry Baxter Russell, a former Union soldier, this two‐story building of pleasing proportions has changed little since 1882. Around 1915 the building was purchased by the Sons and Daughters of Relief, an African American social service organization. Windows of the second level have semicircular heads and corresponding brick hoodmolds and there are decorative brackets below the wooden cornice.

  • He is best known as a part-owner and leader of Sears, Roebuck and Company, and for the Rosenwald Fund, which donated millions to support the education of African Americans and other philanthropic causes in the first half of the twentieth century.
  • Over the course of his life, Rosenwald and his fund donated over $70 million to public schools, colleges and universities, museums, Jewish charities, and black institutions. The school building program was one of the largest programs administered by the Rosenwald Fund, contributing over $4 million in matching funds to the construction of over 5,000 schools throughout America. These schools became known as "Rosenwald Schools."
