This school, the second on this site, was built in 1921 by Back Swamp residents. As elementary school sometimes known as St. Winifred´s, it boasted as many as two teachers and sixty students in some years. When it closed in 1950 its students were transferred to Florence schools; it has since served as the Back Swamp Community Center.
