Cairo Rosenwald School was a school for African-Americans located in Cairo, Sumner County, Tennessee. The school, completed in 1923, followed the architectural style of the Rosenwald School design for a one-teacher African-American school. Its construction was funded by the African-American community, the public, and Rosenwald funds. Due to the consolidation of schools, the school was closed in 1959. The structure remains intact today, serving as a community center. It is listed with the National Register of Historic Places.
