City Directories and History: The Lowry’s school house is one of the charming structures that define Lowry’s as a pleasant rural community in which to live in Chester County, SC. The building was constructed in circa 1910 and continued actively educating local students for decades. The lovely building was the architectural and construction work of Rock Hill, S.C., architect – builder, Mr. Julian S. Starr. The construction of the facility cost $4,000.
Previously, the Yorkville Enquirer reported on Sept. 13, 1893 that Lowrysville High School opened on Monday with Prof. J.B. Kennedy as Principle and Ms. Kate Douglass as assistant.
