Ebenezer Academy building was built in the mid 1800s and was associated with the Ebenezer Presbyterian Church in what was Ebenezerville, SC (later became part of Rock Hill, SC). The Academy itself predates the building and can be traced to the early 1800s, while the Ebenezer Presbyterian Church dates to shortly after the American Revolution. In the late 1880s, the building was leased to York county and served as an elementary school. The elementary school lasted until 1950s when it was deeded back to the church. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.
