Pleasant Hill Middle School – Hemingway SC

Description

According to the Georgetown Times in 1937, “An $80,000 Pleasant Hill School was nearing completion as a WPA project.”

However, further confirmation of this is needed; according to the school’s National Register of Historic Places nomination form, “there is no record that Pleasant Hill Consolidated School was constructed with Federal monies, [although] the Georgetown County School District did receive significant amounts of Federal aid from 1935 to 1939.”
