Miss Frierson’s Schoolhouse

Miss Sarah Jane (Janie) Frierson was a well-known educator and the daughter of Dr. David Frierson, an early pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Anderson. Miss Frierson opened her one-room school in the late 1880s. Eventually, the Frierson School was moved to the Anderson County Fairgrounds and stood there until the fairgrounds were sold to Anderson University. In 2009, the Frierson School House was donated by Anderson Heritage Inc. to the Anderson County Museum. The school was moved to its present location in August, 2009.
