Price Public Elementary School, also known as Hasson Street Community Center, was built to educate African American children in grades K-8 in the town of Rogersville, Tennessee during segregation.
When integration took place in Rogersville, during the 1960s, the school's students were transferred to Rogersville City School, also a K-8 institution. The structure was abandoned and had become run-down until the mid-1990s, when leaders of the African American community worked with officials from the Town, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Rogersville Heritage Association to restore the building.
The School was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.
Restoration of the building is largely complete. Today, it serves as a community center for Rogersvillians of all races, and leaders of the Friends of Price Public School have called it a symbol of the great potential of true racial reconciliation.
