“Fountain Inn High School is located on North Main Street, near the intersection of North Main and Quillen Avenue, within the city limits of Fountain Inn, in Greenville County, South Carolina. …
The high school is a 19,000-square foot rectangular brick building, constructed in 1939 by the Public Works Administration (PWA) in the Moderne architectural style during Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first presidential term. The asymmetrical L-shaped building consists of an original auditorium as well as an original two-story classroom wing. This two-story and basement building features nine classrooms, two offices, a library, and an auditorium. The exterior walls are brick on concrete footings bearing the load. The interior walls and stud partitions are plastered. Floor construction and floors are of wood. The building is covered with an asphalt shingled roof on timber trusses. With the exception of a few modern amenities and ADA accessibility driven renovations, the building remains in excellent condition and is a fine example of both Art Deco design and New Deal-era PWA design.”
The PWA supplied a $34,166 grant toward the high school’s construction, which began Dec. 1938 and was completed Sept. 1939. The project was completed at a cost of $73,838.
