Charlotte’s Historic Siloam School Will Be Saved

After a generous donation, WCCB's Kelli Bartik reports that one of Charlotte's most historic buildings, the Siloam School, will be saved and given new life.

CHARLOTTE, N. C. — One of Charlotte’s most historic buildings will be saved. The Siloam School, which was built in the early 1920’s will be restored and relocated next spring.

The Charlotte Museum of History exceeded its fundraising goal to save the school, thanks in part to a recent $500-Thousand Dollar donation from the Gambrell Foundation.

WCCB Charlotte’s Kelli Bartik caught up with Terri L. White, the museum’s CEO, to find out what’s next for one of Mecklenburg County’s oldest remaining African American schoolhouses.
