School House
4 x 4 quilt block

The School House block pays tribute to the origin of the center, built in 1922 as the elementary school for the community to replace the wooden structure which burned.

 

The two-story structure has a working bell tower and is supported by the Greater Gowensville Association through an annual Fall Festival on the second Saturday in November.

 

The building is listed as an historic site by the Greenville County Historic Association.

 

The Landrum Quilters, founded in 1980, has met at the community center for many years.   The group holds a monthly business meeting with a program and show and tell on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 9:30 a. m.  A Monday bee is usually set for the 4th Monday at 9:30 a. m.  A biennial Landrum Quilt Show takes place at Landrum Middle School on odd-numbered years.   The group is known for its philanthropic efforts with the Ronald McDonald House, the Hospice House of Landrum, Steps to Hope and the Hope Center for Children.  Members also have worked with the City of Landrum to develop and expand the Foothills Quilt Trail.

 

The block is replicated from a quilt created by former LQ member Karla Glova and her mother Nelda Barkmann.
