JL's Columbia SC Real Estate Blog: Speechless Sunday - Mt. Zion in Winnsboro, SC

Speechless Sunday - Mt. Zion in Winnsboro, SC

Mt Zion in Winnsboro, SC


Located at 250 Zion Street in Winnsboro, SC, Mt. Zion was originally built as a college and dedicated in 1777. Though the building was never fully used for it's intended purpose, it has served as a school on several occasions, the last being as an intermediate school where I myself attended in 4th and 5th grade. Today to old building is vacant but still an interesting sight as the center piece for a park and walking trail.

Things sure do change over time JL. Maybe one day your former school will again serve as a building for learning.  All the best

Such a shame they couldn't 'renovate' or repurpose such an iconic building, JL. My high school sits in the same state and to me, it's just so sad!

Hope you have a great week away!

Good morning Debe. What an ominous looking building. Would have been scary for a 4th grader.

There is something extra special in retracing our old footsteps.  Not long ago, I was in the neighborhood I grew up in.  The elementary school looks nearly the same.  The junior high no longer exists, because it burned down decades ago.

1777 is a heckuva long time and it’s interesting to see something that has some longevity in this young country.
