About This Image
The Old School - Montezuma Georgia Art Print by Mark Tisdale

The old school pictured in this Montezuma Georgia art print is one of those buildings that carried different names throughout its history. So the name of the school varies with the generations. In my time, this was Macon County Elementary School. And, in fact, that was its last use before being replaced and closed. Built in 1921, it was originally a city school for Montezuma and served all ages. By the late 1950's, after school consolidation, it was Macon County High School for a time.

The architectural style of the old school was fairly common in the early decades of the 20th century. Some refer to it as Collegiate Gothic while others call it Institutional Gothic. Whatever the name, to me it was a classic red brick schoolhouse - very similar to one my Mom attended in her hometown. Now fewer survive. After closing, the one here in Montezuma was eventually demolished. So this art print is my tribute to my own memories of that old schoolhouse.

Wonderful Memories

I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

She Loves It!

My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
