SC Picture Project  |  Darlington County  |  Hartsville Public School

This two-story brick structure in Hartsville was built as a public grade school in 1902 on land donated by Major James Lide Coker, founder of Coker College. In 1909 the building became a high school and operated until 1925. At that time a new Hartsville High School was built on West Carolina Avenue, which now houses the Thornwell School of the Arts.
