Marian Anderson Library, Pierce County

Originally the Blackshear School

Built in 1925 with Rosenwald funds, the Blackshear School served the Black community of Blackshear, Georgia. After it closed, it became the Marian Anderson Library. At one point, it held a special collection of books and paintings on the African American experience that was eventually moved to the Lee Street Resource Center. I am uncertain when it no longer stopped serving as a library, but it now being used as a storage facility.
