Smithboro School, Jasper County

This is likely a WPA school. I had misidentified it as being in Putnam County, but thanks to Connie Taylor Cason and Suzanne Smith Forte, I was able to correctly identify it. Suzanne notes that it was probably closed sometime in the 1930s.

    Very neat. I have lived in Eatonton most of my life and have never seen this building. Im very interested in old schools and buildings of this type. If you have any more information I’d love to hear it. I’m still not sure where exactly this is.

    The Piedmont School. Constructed in the 30s by WPA as part of the “Piedmont Homestead Project”.
