The Campbell County Training School Complex, also originally known as the Rustburg School, is located on an 8.81-acre parcel in the town of Rustburg in Campbell County at 1470 Village Highway. The training school complex was originally constructed and operated as a Rosenwald School. The Campbell County Training School Complex is the only Rosenwald School in the county that retains a complex of buildings.

The purpose of this project was to work with the Campbell County Training School Complex Committee to develop a vision for how the buildings will be reused and what they would look like. The goal is to renovate the three remaining buildings that have not yet been renovated so that the campus can serve as a cultural, educational, and historical facility.

Plans include coworking/business incubator space, childcare, a museum to display artifacts and antiquities, classroom space for educational lectures, vocational training space, and other activities of public interest.

A team of interior design students created the designs for the interior and a landscape architecture student updated a conceptual master plan that was previously created.
