Hamrick Hall opens after new building destroyed by fire

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A private school building was dedicated Sunday morning after a fire destroyed the original structure last year.

Hamrick Hall on Water Street is part of First Baptist School. The hall is named for the school's founder.

The building houses the school's seventh and eighth grade classrooms.

School officials said the fire in March of 2012 left many of their students scattered in available space wherever they could find throughout downtown.

"It is remarkable. We were in every room in the church, were borrowing some rooms from First Scots - gave us three rooms over there. We were all over downtown Charleston," said Headmaster Thomas Mullins. "And now we're back in our home and our special location right here. So we're very happy to be here."

The original building was a home converted into a school house that housed art classes and computer lab. Mullins said the structure needed repairs.

The new building has updated technology, a chemistry lab and a biology lab.
