Shiloh School – Seneca, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Oconee County Photos  |  Shiloh School

This brick schoolhouse in Seneca was likely built in the 1920s in the town’s Shiloh community. It is not to be confused with another nearby school in Seneca of the same name that was built between 1926 and 1927 as a Rosenwald School. Rosenwald Schools were partly funded by Chicago businessman Julius Rosenwald, then-president of Sears, Roebuck, and Company, to help educate black students across the rural, segregated South. The school pictured here served the white students of Shiloh. The Shiloh Rosenwald School is no longer extant.

The Shiloh School likely consolidated in the mid twentieth century, a common practice for South Carolina schools during that time. The former school building then became the Shiloh Community Club until the early 1990s. Today the building sits vacant.

Many thanks to both William H. Myers, III for sharing his photo of the school and to Tom Taylor of Greenville, who assisted in gathering information on its history.

It appears that the Rosenwald school of the same name is still extant, and listed under GNIS data as "Queendale School." It's located next door to Shiloh Baptist Church, just south of the Shiloh School in this article.
