Fort Lawn Community Center

Fort Lawn, SC 29714
(803) 872-4491

The center began as a high school in 1888. The original building burned and was replaced with a new brick building in 1915. Grades 1-11 were educated in this building made possible by funds from bonds. Its doors were closed in 1993 after consolidation with El Bethel School in 1923. In 1996 a group of Fort Lawn citizens took action and developed plans to refurbish and renovate this historical building for the community. The center, offering meeting spaces along with many activities and programs, is available for rent. Now expanded to include raised bed gardening, the center is a site on the SC Ag + Art Tour. Open Mon-Fri: 8:30 am-5 pm.
