Cedar Creek School, Tattnall County

Tattnall County GA Cedar Creek Area Early 20th Century Schoolhouse Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2016

This is one of the best preserved country schoolhouses I’ve ever found. I tried to find it in the Educational Survey of Tattnall County, but that document is not properly formatted online. I’m calling it Cedar Creek School because that’s the neighborhood in which it’s located and I know that there was a rural school known by that name in Tattnall County. My guess is that it dates to the 1910s-1920s.

    Edit. Cedar Creek School. On Cedar Creek spur road Collins Georgia. This red brick school is probably built on the same site as the original school house. I always passed this red red school going down road. Powell family, Kennedy families,Lynn family’s etc. My ancestors are buried in two cemeteries. One is Cedar CREEK Baptist and other is on a road closer to main highway.

    I am watching Saving Grace about old churches in Tattnal county. There was a photo of an very old school tagged Cedar Creek s by. I could barely read the info but it was along side photo of Cedar Grove school which is near Altamaha. I am familiar with this red brick school as it is just a short distance from my grandpa farm on other side of intersection of road to the church. The photo of schools is on website for Emory Center for Digital Scholarships

    Brian, do you have the Rosenwald database? Here’s the link:

    There are not photos for all of the listings. but most do and may be a help.

    I do not recognize this school house. Could it be Hillview School in the northern part of Tattnall County? There was a Cedar Haw School near the present day State Prison in the western part of the county.

    This is an old school house from days gone by. I am glad it is preserved, so that they younger people of today can see it.
