2015 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

BOGART HISTORIC AGRICULTURAL CENTER
Bogart, Clarke County

Built in the 1930s to house Bogart High School's Agricultural and Home Economics programs, this building originally contained two classrooms, a teaching kitchen, workshop and cannery, but fell into disuse over the years and was allowed to deteriorate. In recent years the City of Bogart began pursuing a restoration plan to turn the schoolhouse into a community centerpiece with space for city council meetings. Both of the original classroom spaces were rehabilitated, with one classroom furnished as it could have been in the 1950s and the other containing exhibits on the history of the community. The workshop and cannery spaces were outfitted to serve as council chambers and a special event space.
