Once the site of the segregated African-American Blue Ridge High School football field, Blue Ridge Field today memorializes the rich history of African-American education in Oconee County from the 1800s to 1969. Blue Ridge High School was an African-American high school in Seneca prior to integration. Football was the pride of Blue Ridge and its surrounding community. After integration, the school became Seneca Junior High and then Code Elementary. The football field, which has remained vacant since the school closed in 1969, is now the site of a heritage park that, upon completion, will include history kiosks, a walking path, community gardens, picnic shelters and a recreation field.
