Newberry Junior High School, Martin Street

The building had been built as Newberry High School in 1911 and became the Newberry Junior High School when a new high school was built on Nance Street in 1926.

Below: a 1911 map; the building had just opened September 18, 1911 with five classrooms, a laboratory, two offices, a large auditorium on the second floor, and a basement with heating equipment, storage rooms, and restrooms.

                      Below: a 1923 map; two large rooms had been added to the rear of the original building in 1921 and a gymnasium had been built.

Some of the above information is from History of Junior High School courtesy of the South Caroliniana Library, University of South Carolina.
