Johnson's Acadamy ~ Jackson County, GA

Jackson County, ca. 1900. Students and teachers pose for a photograph outside Johnson's Academy School, located on Ga. Highway 11. It was a one-room structure that had a fireplace to provide heat. Note the firewood in the background at the left. The school operated as a private educational institution at first. Later it became part of the school system of Jackson County. Then after Barrow County was created July 7, 1914, the school became part of the school system in Barrow County.
