Inscription.  
Originally located in China Springs, near Aiken, and believed to have been built in the 1890's this schoolhouse was given to the Aiken County Historical Commission by Mrs. Guerin Hermann of Sandersville, Georgia in 1975.

The one room schoolhouse preservation was an Aiken County Bicentennial project of the Aiken County Historical Commission and the Pine Needle Garden Club in 1976.

Under the direction of Mrs. Arthur (Nancy N.) Courtney, chairperson on the Aiken County Historical Commission and director of the Aiken County Museum the schoolhouse was moved from China Springs to a location near the Aiken County Vocational school on Highway 17. The restoration included the addition of a stoop and belfry to the original structure.

In 1984 the schoolhouse was moved to its present location on the grounds of The Aiken County Historical Museum.
