Sunnydale School

This building housing a still-active general store on the Old Asheville Highway coming out of Greeneville TN (36.06565, -82.81470) began life as the Sunnydale School, a one-room educational facility from the early part of the 20th century up into the 1930s.  The current proprietor’s father bought the building in 1944 and began the general store.  She told me that her grandfather was associated with the school, perhaps as a teacher.  My stepdad ran several general stores…it’s a daily struggle.
