Pine Grove School

We know very little about Pine Grove School thus far. It is documented in the Department of Archives and History as part of a program by the Sinking Fund Commission to photograph schools across South Carolina for insurance purposes.

However, the SCDAH includes no background information. We also know that in 2001, it was used as a meeting place by the Sons of the Confederate Veterans Camp #48.

Contributor Joshua Nicholson wrote us the following comment, providing the most helpful information we have seen on this property thus far: “My great grandmother Minnie Lee Rodgers attended this school as did many older people in the community. There are several pictures of family at the school in the early 1930s. From what I remember her saying, this school was opened in the earlier 1900s after the nearby Spagner School was closed. The land was donated by a cousin of hers by the last name Trotter. I don’t know if documents exist to verify it but many of the people in that community were of mixed Native American (Rodgers, Bartley, Trotters, etc.) descent. My great grandmother said her cousin gave the land for them to have a school since they weren’t allowed to go to Emory, Butler, or any of the other nearby schools.”

If you can help with any further information, please add it below. Thank you!
