- Rabun Gap, 1905. Home economics student at Rabun Gap Industrial School in the process of making a cake according to the instructions on the blackboard. The school was founded by Andrew Jackson Ritchie and opened in 1905. Academic and industrial subjects were taught to both day and boarding students. In Feb. 1926 fire destroyed the main school building. Shortly thereafter, fire destroyed almost all of the Nacoochee Institute in neighboring White County. Since the schools were similar, it was decided to merge them and build a larger plant at Rabun Gap. It was known as Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School.
