IMAGES OF OUR PAST - JOHNSON STREET SCHOOL, JOHNSON STREET, DUBLIN, GEORGIA - TODAY IS A SAD DAY FOR ANYONE WHO EVER ATTENDED JOHNSON STREET SCHOOL OR PLAYED ON ITS FUN PLAYGROUND. THE HISTORIC BUILDING BURNED TODAY. THE FIRST SCHOOL (SHOWN BELOW) BURNED IN 1947. THE HISTORY OF A SCHOOL CAN NOT BE TRULY TOLD IN WORDS. IT'S STORY IS IN THE MEMORIES, MEMORIES OF THOSE WHO TAUGHT AND LEARNED INSIDE THE WALLS. THERE WERE GLAD TIMES AND SAD TIMES, BUT MOSTLY THE FOND TIMES WHEN STUDENTS MET NEW FRIENDS SOME OF WHOM THEY KNEW FOR A SHORT WHILE OR MANY WHO THEY STILL KNOW DECADES LATER.



Original School, 1908 


Johnson Street School, 1954
