Old Shiloh School House – Starr, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Anderson County Photos | Old Shiloh School House
Pictured here is the old Shiloh School, located in Anderson County outside of Starr, near the juncture of US 29 and SC 412. In the earliest days of our nation’s history, the land that is now Anderson County was populated by the Cherokee Indians. Most of the white settlers who came to the area in the 18th century were Scots-Irish farming families moving south from Pennsylvania and Virginia. Pendleton is the county’s oldest town, its charter dating from 1790.
The bucolic scene pictured here exists in today’s Anderson County in juxtaposition to a thriving manufacturing corridor. 230 manufacturing companies operate in the county including 11 automotive suppliers, 27 plastics companies, 22 international firms, and corporate headquarters for 26 companies.
