When the school opened in 1937, it was used as a junior high school. In 1940, however, the school was also used for high school courses, making Liberty one of two black high schools in Pickens County. A decade later, high school students at Liberty were transferred to a neighboring school, Easley High. After Easley and Liberty were consolidated, the former Liberty high school building became an elementary school and was renamed Rosewood Elementary. After the closing of the elementary school, the building was used frequently during the 1990s well into the early 2000s for recreation use and is now owned by the town and leased out for local events.
