Living History classroom

Ebenezer School Rincon Georgia


Once sitting in a field in a rural community west of Savannah Georgia, this one-room refurbished schoolhouse is back to school. Located on the campus of Ebenezer School in Rincon Georgia, it is in use as a classroom for Living history lessons.  Last, in service in 1940, the bells ring again.

The Ebenezer community is one of Georgia’s first settlements. The original colonists emigrated From Salzburg, present-day Austria.

This is also a great example of a community effort to preserve the past.

  1. I love living history classrooms! So completely different than what school is like now days. Living in Sacramento, there are quite a few scattered around town; one in my neighborhood which is used as a preschool/daycare but still kept to its historical theme. The other I saw every day for years was an old school house in Old Sacramento. You could walk in a get the feel of the vibe of education from the Gold Rush period. Lovely photograph and thanks for linking with Sunday Stills!

  2. This is so great to see! There is so much “life” in history and history tends to repeats itself. Thank you for sharing.
