St. Andrews AME Church, Screven County

At the moment, the only information I know is that the church was founded in 1868, and the building was erected in 1914. I know they were an active congregation prior to COVID.

My assumption is that this was a Masonic lodge or school, perhaps both.

Barney Colored Elementary School, Brooks County

Built in 1933 in Brooks County, Georgia, this school was built with Rosenwald funds to serve Black school children of the county. The Morven Alumni Association, another Rosenwald School in the county, fund raised and helped get the building restored. This school building operated from 1933 to 1959. It now serves as a community building for Barney, Georgia and the surrounding towns. It is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
