Fremont School was built in 1915 after General Assembly legislation passed that same year, requiring all children ages eight to fourteen to attend school. In 1926, an addition was built on the south end of the building that expanded the school to almost double its size. Fremont continued to serve Spartanburg’s Northside as an elementary school until 1979. 

On October 24, 2000, the 48,000+ square foot Classical Revival style school was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The building boasts decorative brickwork, terra cotta ornamentation, beautiful porticoes, and arched doorways. In 2002, the old elementary school took on a new life in the community as it was converted to apartments.
