Various types of historic school buildings are located throughout the state.
The following are definitions and illustrations of the architectural types of schools identified for Georgia:
- Preserving Georgia's Historic Schools (October 2003) (pdf)
- Public Elementary and Secondary Schools in Georgia, 1868-1971 (October 2004) (pdf)
This historic context identifies and evaluates publicly funded schools in Georgia [and it does not address private academies or colleges]. The historic context is written in the form of a multiple property nomination that provides registration requirements for potential National Register nominations and determinations of eligibility for Section 106 compliance. Future National Register nominations for individual schools will need to include information specific to the school being nominated. This historic context need only be referenced, thereby saving the preparer time and effort.
