The Bigelow Rosenwald School, also known as Rosenwald Community Center, is a former Rosenwald School located in Toad Suck, about 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Bigelow, Perry County, Arkansas. Built in 1926, it is a single-story wood frame building with vernacular Craftsman elements. It served as a school until 1964, when it became a community center. It is the only Rosenwald School building that still stands in Perry County.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.[1]
