West Union Group Unveils Marker

January 21, 2013

A West Union group has unveiled a marker to commemorate the West Union Grammar School.  The building, which was built in the 1920s, was torn down last year.  It was used for grades 1 through 6 until 1969.  The marker was purchased by the West Union School Preservation Association.  For nearly 4 years the preservation group worked to save the building.  The marker is located along highway 11, near the West Union Fire station.  In an effort to further preserve memories of the former school, the preservation association also paid for a display case at the Oconee Heritage center, for display of artifacts or memorabilia of the former West Union grammar school.
