Miss Frierson’s Schoolhouse

fifth eclectic reader book in our schoolhouse

Miss Sarah Jane (Janie) Frierson was a well-known educator and the daughter of Dr. David Frierson, an early pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Anderson. Miss Frierson opened her one-room school in the late 1880s.  In June of 2009, Anderson Heritage provided funding to move the One Room School House from the fair grounds to the upper parking lot of the museum.
