Posted by Barnhill Contracting Company - Barnhill is honored to serve as the Construction Manager at Risk for the new version of this school. With its rich history and strong sense of community in Elm City, NC, the demolition couldn’t happen without a significant way to commemorate its beginnings. Partnering with Wilson County Schools and Nelson Aerial Productions, the documentary, Frederick Douglass School: The Future’s Past, showcases the legacy of Frederick Douglass School through the eyes of its former students and teachers, principal, and alumni association members. It’s well worth the watch, and we are proud to be part of the story.
