The Terrifying, Deadly Fire In South Carolina That Should Never Be Forgotten

Imagine yourself back in 1923. Your child’s school just wrapped up another year and is readying to close for good – right after the school performs a short play for parents and family members. The date is May 27, 1923. You’ve gathered up the family and are sitting in the auditorium of your child’s school. The auditorium is located on the second floor of the old, wooden school house. The play is about to wrap up when an oil lamp falls from the wall, igniting the drapes on the school’s stage. Attempts to put out the fire are unsuccessful.

Virtually no living person can remember the actual event of this fire in South Carolina – but that doesn’t mean it should be forgotten. Had you heard of this tragic fire before today? Interested in paying a visit to the memorial? It’s open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
