Northwestern Elementary, Crabapple, GA. Late 70s/early 80s. No longer extant.

We only had one first grade, if I remember correctly. I had Mrs. Hamilton. I think there may have been no AC, and they left the doors open in warm weather. Sometimes a dog would wander in and traipse the halls. Mr. Martin taught music. They had field days there with big wheel races. We also one time had a family bring an elephant. I think the family owned a circus? And we had, kid you not, Turkey Shoots. At the school. Awesome place.

    I attended Northwestern Elementary in the early-mid eighties. Rather sad that it’s no longer there and I didn’t get a chance to wander the halls a bit before they demolished the building.

    Pretty special experience.
