Miss Arnold’s School House

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.

My late grandmother, Lillian Calhoun Dyer, of Baldoc, S.C., told us that she taught music in a one room school house near Allendale. We have no pictures, but the time frame of Miss Armold’s death would be about right.
