Built in 1922, the Germantown School is an original Tuskegee-design two room school financed through the Rosenwald Rural School Building Program, a public/private partnership made possible through the vision of Booker T. Washington and Julius Rosenwald and dedicated to the improvement of educational facilities for African American students throughout the southern United States. One of 5000 Rosenwald schools in operation across the country by the 1930s, the Germantown School educated students from its opening in 1922 through its closure in the 1950s.

The legacy of the Germantown School did not end with its closing.  After being converted into a county garage in the early 1960s, it was restored to its original condition through the same type of public/private partnership effort that led to its founding.  Community members received the deed to the school in 2000 and worked together to not only restore the school building, but also to reaffirm its mission of education and community enrichment.

The restored Germantown school boast a museum that transports visitors back to this important time in our collective history.  In addition, the Germantown Community Heritage Center hosts regular educational, cultural and community events, ensuring its continuing role as welcoming gathering place for the community, a place for all people.

Event Venue & Creative Space for Arts
 
From the website:
Our story begins with A. Reggie Mariner, II slowly buying the different parcels that make up our grounds back in the 1970’s.  The property was meant to embody a vision he had for preserving the architectural styles and characters he grew up with on the Eastern Shore.  A general contractor for nearly fifty years, Reggie would work on the property with his crew in between jobs and on weekends, often recruiting his three children to help- Jennifer, Reggie Jr. and Beth.  One pickup load at a time they cleaned the property up.

In the mid 1980’s after completing a residence for he and his wife, Ann Showell Mariner, Reggie began construction on his recreation artisan’s village.  It began with a potter… first building a studio space and then a shed for the kilns.  With these two buildings completed, the gates were opened in 1984 and guests could come visit and experience crafts and trades of a bygone era.  Each year Reggie would continue to build a little more!

During the 1990’s the property was in it’s heyday.  In addition to the holiday weekend shows there were haunted hay ride attractions as well as catered events and private parties.   Reggie and Ann  traveled all over Delmarva in search of talented artists and tradesmen that would demonstrate their craft such as weavers, potters, blacksmiths, letterpress arts, candle making, gunsmithing and so many others!  Katherine Purnell  would cook up mouth watering Eastern Shore delicacies on the wood cook stove in the Workboat Galley for guests and Woodrow Higgins would delight folks with his storytelling.  The smell of wood smoke billowed from the chimneys of the buildings that had become Mariner’s Country Down and the dream of “living tomorrow’s future through today’s past” had come to fruition.

As any artist will tell you, when the creative process strikes you seize it!  And that can often come without abiding by all the rules regulations that one must follow.  And after mounting pressure from local government, the gates were closed in 2000 and not much happened since.  However in the last few years a new generation of the family has stepped forward to try and bring the property into compliance and begin hosting events again!  We are committed to embracing the ideals Reggie began with, while also focusing on the ecological and cultural values our farm has to offer!
