This tiny one-room school house in Allendale was built in 1875 for teacher Augusta Salena Arnold. “Miss Arnold,” as she was known, was a passionate educator whose students came from Barnwell and Hampton counties, as Allendale County was not chartered until 1919. Miss Arnold taught here for the remainder of the nineteenth century. She died in 1929.
The school house originally sat near United States Highway 301. It was relocated to the grounds of the Salkehatchie Arts Council around 2006 and serves as an historical exhibit.
