Description

"Still sits the schoolhouse by the road" begins an 1870 poem by John Greenleaf Whittier. former Beaverdam School on Old Georgia Road now 3005 Old Georgia Hwy. Closed in 1956 the building remained empty for many years In 1989 the building was made into a restaurant by descendants of Col. Ed Hope DeCamp. They felt naming the restaurant for DeCamp, who had played such an important role in the development of Cherokee County, was a fitting and proper way to pay homage to him. DeCamp, a man of destiny, was born in 1865, an orphan of The War between The States, whose father fought for the Confederacy and whose mother died two months after his birth. He lived with a widowed aunt until he quit school in the fourth grade after a boyish grievance with a teacher. DeCamp worked various jobs, eventually arriving at the State Newspaper in Columbia. In the late 1800s, he had an offer to come to Gaffney to operate a proposed newspaper; he became the sole owner of the paper. He also founded the Grit & Steel, the world's oldest game fowl magazine. Both are still published today in Gaffney. The magazine has approximately 5,000 readers A champion of the people. DeCamp stood fast in his convictions, leading a successful campaign to form Cherokee County from Union, York and Spartanburg counties. The spacious, high-ceilinged, multi-windowed classrooms then served as dining rooms and a parlor-sitting room, where diners waited for friends or to be seated. Originally the entire second floor was the school auditorium, complete with a stage. It was then, renamed the Regency Room, it had a lounge area, and the stage remains. The property is zoned Residential. It could easily be turned back to commercial. It holds 4 main rooms, 2 separate bathrooms are the lower level with Fullbath room on the 2nd level. The Kitchen is commercial size and as a walk in cooler. There is a commercial hood that was install recently. The Seller has updated the fire suppression system as well.
