Creation Date



The marker reads: "ATTAPULGUS HIGH SCHOOL (Continued from other side) With county consolidation, the High School was moved to Bainbridge in 1966 and the elementary grades in 1971. In 1972 a tornado badly damaged the main building and destroyed the gymnasium and AG building. The County Board declared the property surplus and sold it to Attapulgus Baptist Church in 1973. With dedicated teachers, an excellent curriculum was taught. When the Attapulgus School closed, all teachers held masters degrees or better. Many of the school’s graduates went on to higher education, performing as well or better than those from larger schools. ERECTED BY THE HISTORIC CHATTAHOOCHEE COMMISSION ALUMNI OF ATTAPULGUS SCHOOL AND THE DECATUR COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY, 2005."
