Noble Hill-Wheeler Memorial Center

The Noble Hill-Wheeler Memorial Center is a restored Rosenwald School that was built in 1923 as the first school for black children, which was built to standard specifications in Northwest Georgia. The school was closed in 1955 when black children in Bartow County were consolidated to form the Bartow Elementary School.

After restoration in 1989 the building now serves as a black cultural museum that features historical aspects of black culture in Bartow County, with the primary focus being on lifestyles dating back to the late 1800’s.
