Manor School, Ware County

The old Manor School was used from 1993-2010 for an innovative magnet campus, the Ware County School of Agricultural, Forestry & Environmental Sciences. It was the only agriculturally based magnet school in the South, and the only K-12 agriculturally based magnet school in the country. It’s a real shame, considering the excellent performance of the school, that money couldn’t be allocated to keep it running. I’m unsure but suspect the school was built by the WPA during the Great Depression.

  1. My grandfather, Clifford Steedley, and great uncle, Farley Lee, were two of the crew that built this school. My older sister, Ginger Parker, was in the last high school class to graduate in 1967. I lived in Manor in 1968- 1969, and was bussed to Ware Co high school where I graduated in 1969.
