    The building looks like it could be a stunning project. I love the shape of the gable at the center and the ceiling of the main space is quite stunning. I hope who gets this building doesn’t change the main space but leaves it intact.

    This is so cool! I wish there were more pictures; can you see the gym as a great room, with the kitchen/dining room at one end? I looked it up on Google Streetview, and this could be an incredible home!

      Can you link to the street view? I had trouble finding it.

        It is just up the street from where it seems to map.

        The Spanish style is a bit unexpected for GA, no?

          Interesting. The description states 1890’s but that front is a little more 1920’s. It’s south Georgia so not unusual but it is for a school that’s as far inland as it is from the coast. Fairly unique building for what it is, for sure!

            It is unique, that’s for sure; I’m not usually able to see myself living in a converted commercial, religious, or municipal building, but I can see this one! Opening up the windows in front, adding a metal roof (affordable) that at least mimics a red Spanish clay tile, a skim layer of new stucco and a few architectural details to make it pop…the outside would look like a 1920s mansion! Again, I REALLY wish there were more pictures of the inside, as well as the sides and rear of the building. Pictures make or break a listing…

    Looks like an area where time has passed it by, in a magical, charming kind of way.

    Imagine the basketball teams in their 1920s uniforms playing in that gym. Or the 1950s sock hop.
    I love old schools!

    Hi! I’m back! I had to reregister with a different email address; I haven’t posted for probably over a year! But seeing THIS place lit a fire under me to go thru having to reregister! Kelly, I just cannot BELIEVE you have put this up here!!!! We used to drive from Tallahassee to Savannah going down 84, which is a beautiful road (except for between Waycross and Screven! My 30+ year old son in the backseat on one trip told the driver to hurry and get out of here, it’s creepy, and it looks like Leatherface would jump out at us! It was like swampy, with palmetto, and it was some nasty looking country! Had to laugh hysterically, though I was glad to get out of there as well!) We drove by this place, and I just screeched WHAT IS THAT??? We didn’t know if it was an old abandoned Masonic Lodge (best we could come up with), or WHAT it was! I looked everywhere on the web when we got home, trying to find it! Google map and everything, but couldn’t find it. I was thinking it was in Homerville, not Stockton, so maybe that’s why! When I saw this in your email, I didn’t recognize it, and I had forgotten the name of Stockton (oh my GOSH how many tiny towns are there in Georgia, right?). I looked at all the pictures, and still didn’t recognize it. Then I looked at the original one again, and thought ”That looks weird, kind of like that place on 84 did.” And then I thought again about the name Stockton, and it started sounding more familiar. So of course I had to do a street view, and saw it was on 84 (I would think that 3 acres on 84 would be worth more than $50!)! Then it hit me, that Stockton was one of those little towns like Homerville, etc. And I just totally screeched when I realized you had just shown me WHAT that building was, when I thought I would never in this lifetime know! This was a really pretty area. I had never thought of it being a school. With it being set back so far from the road, (plus I would have been wearing my mid range glasses), it looked to me like there were NO windows, so I never thought of a school, just lodges or barns. But really, it didn’t seem like either, and I was just CONSUMED with curiosity about it! I’m glad to be set back up on here again; have really missed being able to talk to everyone on here! Kelly, thanks again for posting this on here so I can FINALLY find out what this building was. The main thing I remember is how GREEN the grass was! It was set way back from the street, with this gorgeous green grass covering the field in front.

    I truly wish there were some more interior shots of the rest of the building, especially the ends that “are in need of much repair”. It looks to have tremendous potential.

    Love the symmetry of the facade with its main feature and the semi-courtyard which could be glorious. Would be so fun to get this on my drawing board and turn into a fabulous house, especially with that main ceiling to capitalize on. I agree, be great to see more photos.
