Dorchester Consolidated School, 1938, Liberty County

The Dorchester Consolidated School was built in 1938 to replace the original 1927 schoolhouse which was lost to fire. It was a consolidation of smaller schools in Sunbury, Colonel’s Island, Riceboro, and Jackson Chapel. It closed in 1951 due to more consolidation by the county. It has served as the community civic center since being sold in 1958 and was completely renovated in 2010.

I cannot confirm it at this time, but due to the 1938 construction date, it was likely a New Deal project.
