I’m not sure of the date of construction of this school, but the first school here was the Clements Institute, which became the Methodist District High School in 1871.
Brennan Bass writes: Growing up in Springhill, I was told it was also the first place to hold classes for South Georgia College before locating to McRae. There used to be community businesses, (ie. Stores, a doctor’s office, etc., located on the grounds). There is an old map of the area from the late 1800s in a book about Springhill that shows this. This book was compiled by a former pastor and local families and historians.
