The Winyah School, originally known as the Winyah Indigo School, is comprised of a 1908 graded school and auditorium. An important landmark in Georgetown, the school was built on what had historically been a commons area for the townspeople. The last class to graduate from this school was the Class of 1985. In November of 1988, the school was placed on the National Register. Two decades later, a group of devoted citizens, along with the City and County of Georgetown, raised enough money to restore the neglected auditorium. The Winyah Auditorium reopened its doors in 2011 and now serves as a cultural and civic center, as well as a performance venue showcasing music and dance arts. Surrounding the auditorium, the Winyah School building also houses The Georgetown School of Arts and Sciences, the Lowcountry Conservatory of Music, Coastal Optical, and Coastal Eye Group.
