Old School History Museum



Housed in four classrooms of the 1916 Eatonton School, which has since been converted into The Plaza Arts Center, The Old School History Museum features a vintage drugstore complete with a marble-topped soda fountain, ice cream chairs and tables, a 1940s jukebox, and period photographs; a reproduction of downtown Eatonton circa 1900; a gallery of Native American, frontier, Civil War, reconstruction, and 20th century history; and a historic classroom restored to its early 1900s state, with vintage desks, student memorabilia, and the original blackboard and cloakroom.

The museum is closed on holidays, and is open Monday to Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for self-guided tours, and for Docent-led tours on Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Call 24 hours in advance for appointment-only Sunday reservations.
