Long Creek Academy – Long Creek, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Oconee County Photos | Long Creek Academy
Completed in 1914, Long Creek Academy in Oconee County was one of six “Mountain Mission Schools” constructed with assistance from the Southern Baptist Convention. It later became an state-accredited private high school and operated as such until the mid-1950s.
Long Creek Academy helped educate dozens of Baptist ministers in upstate South Carolina. Sold in the 1970s, the building is now the headquarters of a local whitewater rafting company. The school was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
SCIWAY thanks Gary DuBose of Seneca, who took this picture in February 2012.
