One Room Schoolhouse?

Filed under: Anderson County, Churches, Schools, & Nonprofits — lessie @ 6:42 pm

I couldn’t figure out how to take this picture. I wanted to be close enough to read the words on the sign…but I also wanted to get the lines of the building, oh, and the beautiful trees on either side, and the wide space of property around the building. Needless to say, I couldn’t get it all. Situated on Hammond School Road, just off Old Williamston Highway, this building screams one-room schoolhouse to me. The sign reads Hammond Community Center, but I wonder if it used to be a local school. How long ago? And Hammond? How big is that community? Never heard of it until driving past this building. Interesting.

  1. You’re right. It used to be the old…multi-grade school? I don’t remember, but you’re on the right track.

  2. nice find…hope someone comes along as knows the History….looks like its from back in the early 50’s maybe. a little community school to me, with grades 1-8…..
    we didn’t seem to need as much room back in them days as they do now. or maybe there was less people.

    • So cool! Thank you so much for commenting. Was it one room when you were there? How many students went there? I guess you and your family knew them all. 🙂 Thanks again for commenting!
