Hosanna Community House in Darlington, Maryland.
The building was one of the first schools built for the recently-freed African-Americans in former slave-holding states. By 1907, it was so run down that it was actually condemned for use as a school. Regardless, it was somehow still used as a school for African-American children for another 38 years. It has seen many repairs over the years, and now it is completely restored and functions as a museum, preserving the structure and its history for future generations.

An Xpress II Inclined Platform Wheechair Lift has recently been added to the outside stairway to provide ADA-compliant, barrier-free accessibility. The unit was able to fit on the narrow back stairs and is equipped with vinyl cover.
