Mershon Elementary School, Circa 1955, Pierce County
A sign above the door identifies this structure as the Mershon School. More specifically, it served as an elementary school before consolidation did away with the need for the rural schools that served crossroads communities for much of the state’s history.

Most likely, it only served the community for 10-15 years. I’d love to hear from anyone who attended and who knows more about the history.

Custom Cab Truck, Brantley County
