Massie School is the only remaining building of Georgia’s oldest chartered public school system. Constructed in 1855-56 and opened for classes on October 15, 1856, the Greek Revival building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The school closed in June of 1974 and is now home to The Massie Heritage Center which strives to create a greater appreciation of Savannah’s rich cultural heritage by preserving the historic school as an interactive exhibit space and educational facility.

At Massie you will learn about the inspiration behind General Oglethorpe’s design for Savannah. Explore the city plan, how the city developed, and the continuing influence of the city plan on its residents.
