This school burned in 1918 and they built one back in its place.

Do you know anything about this school near Mt. Pleasant? My parents/grandparents have made mention of a school on Terrapin Branch (Screamer) that burned down. Could this be it? Kathy Overstreet, 23 Jul 2013
 Kathy, the occurrence of familiar surnames specific to that area tells me chances are it was the school you mentioned as the Ettation School. That is SE of Mt Pleasant. All the fertile creek valleys such as Terrapin Branch and Scotts Creek and others of that area had large populations of children in the early 1900s that needed education.
BTW who was Willie Overstreet in the third row. Only Willie Overstreet I know of is in the Spencer Hill Cemetery & he would have been 34 at the time of this photo? Was he a teacher or administrator? CWA 24 Jul 2013
