Very little information is available on the history of this very early Rock Hill school. The postcard view of Park Ave., unfortunately didn’t capture the building, only the sidewalk in front of the old school. The school and the Mills home next door were both demolished to make room for the Downtowner Motel.
The O’Neal history, this page, states that Ms. Stoney from Charleston and Mrs. Lou Rhea were the teachers at the school.
The Herald on June 30, 1900 – “The House of John White, colored, caught fire Thursday morning and was put out in time to prevent the fire from spreading to the home of Prof. Buist and the editor, (J.O. Hull), as the wind was blowing in that direction.”
