Our Beginning

In 1914, the future was bleak for children living in the isolated Appalachian Mountain areas of South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia.  Motivated by a desire to improve the quality of life in this region and a commitment by their organization to aid education, the Daughters of the American Revolution voted to establish a school “in a place remote, yet accessible, where the need seems greatest.”
