The Nolensville School, also known as Old Nolensville Elementary School, is a former public school in Nolensville, Tennessee, that has for many years served as a community recreation center (the Nolensville Community Recreation Center).
The school was built in 1937 using a Rosenwald School plan. It was the "first modern educational building" in Nolensville and is unusual as the only school for whites in Tennessee that was built to a Rosenwald School plan. African American students did not attend the school until it was integrated in 1966.
A gymnasium was added in 1948. The building became a community recreation center in 1972 after a new school was built to replace it. In 2009, after the town of Nolensville announced plans to convert the 1972 school into a new recreation center, the Nolensville Historical Society began a campaign to preserve the old Nolensville School for use as a community center. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on March 20, 2012.
