Sparta-Spartansburg Consolidated School Building

Sparta-Spartansburg Consolidated School Building

Photographed while under construction in 1922.

"...the fine new Sparta-Spartansburg Consolidated School Building. This fine new brick building of the modern type is now under roof and fully enclosed and will be completed next summer [1923] in time for the opening of school in September. It is being erected by the joint district of Sparta Township and Spartansburg Borough and is designed to accommodate the Joint Vocational High School, the elementary schools of the borough and as many of the township schools as are within transportation distance. Six of the township schools, Blakeslee, State Lot, Tyler, Hatchtown, Murdock, and Enterprise have already been closed and are being transported to the central school as are also the 7th and 8th grades from the Britton Run and Twilight districts."
