Hilton Head school listed in National Register of Historic Places

December 7, 2012 

A 75-year-old schoolhouse on the north end of Hilton Head Island has made it into the history records. The Cherry Hill School has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The one-room schoolhouse was built in 1937 after the Gullah community raised money to buy the land for the Beaufort County School District. In return, the district built the school with the help of community members.
