Ailey School-Ailey, Georgia

Montgomery County

Built in 1927 for $3650, this three-teacher type Rosenwald School is now used as a community center in Ailey, Georgia. Shelton A. Mincey, a delegate to the 1912 and 1920 Republican National Convention, was integral to getting a school built in the rural community of Ailey. An old photo of the school can be seen on Fisk’s Rosenwald database.

McAllister House and Cemetery-Long Pond, Georgia

The house and cemetery are located across the street from each other in Long Pond, Georgia. The McAllister family is one of the original families of the area.

I understand that the gabled ell farmhouse is one of two houses on the property. The other is apparently the original log cabin.
