Latta in Dillon County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
The story of Vidalia does not end here. From its closing until around 1950 the building served as a Methodist assembly hall, a sharecropper dwelling and later a chicken coop. Over the next decade and a half it fell into disrepair and later moved to the site of the old Latta High School where it was renovated. Its journey was not complete. The building was to be moved again and stored when the high school was rebuilt. Under the watchful eyes of LaFon and Cindy LeGette the school was again renovated and has been loaned to the town of Latta and has become an integral part of this town park.
