Schley County, Georgia
Donna Lynn Motel
The big bldg. to the left (west) of this now demolished Donna Lynn motel was
the high school gym. Still standing, and I believe is being used now as
community rec. center. The front of the gym and the motel face south (on Hwy
26, 1/2 block from main intersection.)
The rear of the gym is only about 50 yards from the rear of the high SCHS
The rear of the gym housed the 1st and 2nd grades when I attended in '53-'54.
Complete with pot bellied stoves for heat. Those 2 rooms were later used for
the boys & girls basketball dressing rooms. The tiny "cloak rooms" were for
the visiting basketball teams. When we "graduated" to 3rd grade, it was into
the "high school bldg". By the time I moved to 4th grade, it was into
the "new" Palmer Elementary School about 1 mile west on 26. Then back to
the "big school" for 8th thru 12th grades.
