I noticed this little church on Beltline the other day, which seems be have been about half re-painted at some point. As far as I can tell from google, there is no new location for Palmetto Baptist Temple, and their web site is down, so I guess they are gone. The attached school apparently closed several years earlier.

The gym facility behind the church seems to be of a much more recent vintage than the church itself, and there is an old, long, out-building, probably the school building, that seems to be older than either.

  1. My brother-in-law went to this school before my wife and I were married. I would go with her to pick him up from time to time in her 1973 Volkswagon.
    I remember thinking to myself, is this a school?
    Must have been around 1974.

  2. I may be totally wrong here, but was this once the campus of Julia Bates private school? I remember going to a friend's piano recital there back in the late 60s.

  3. Cary - I believe it was a private school when my brother in law went there but I do not remember the name of the school, funny though, the name Julia Bates sounds familiar to me.

  4. Cary -- Yes, it was formerly Julia Bates until about 1979-1980 (or so), when Palmetto Baptist Temple (the church) and Palmetto Baptist Academy (the church's school) purchased it. PBT/PBA split a year or two prior from Harbor Baptist Church/Harbor Christian School in West Columbia. Glenforest School now occupies the old Harbor site.

  6. I went to Julia Bates Private School.in 1965/1966.
    It was a very good experience and allowed me to start First Grade at 5 years old instead of 7 at public school. My teacher was Mrs. Bates herself, wife of Columbia Mayor Lester Bates. This school gave me a head start and a good one.
