在我住的第二天游览自由县,我们做了一个站在多切斯特酒店位于格鲁吉亚学院和博物馆。 这家历史悠久的酒店位于拐角处的高速公路东奥格尔索普(路线84)和刘易斯马尔科姆弗雷泽酒店。 每次行程的起点是位于一个小博物馆的建筑前面的宿舍。 进入内部你会受到一个友好的工作人员和志愿者给了一个简短的游览。 您将学习的历史建筑,参加了学校的年轻男子,和那些被书写为非裔美国教育和公民权利。 我的导游,有培根先生,评论说我的眼睛都亮起来的历史以及如何"只会在你的血液。" 它确实。 我有提到最近我喜欢历史悠久的格鲁吉亚沿海多少? 当前正进行大规模的整修,主要建筑,一个漂亮的两层楼的宿舍格鲁吉亚复苏,构建为教育的内战后获得自由的奴隶。 由1917 ,完全资格鉴定的有300多个建筑几乎和高中的学生。 不幸的是这里的很多建筑被烧毁或拆掉后在1930 1940关在学校。 当你漫步在走廊和场馆,你可以感受到建筑的过去和想象的生活每天都换的可用性的这样一个高水平的学习。 我们的导游提到教育提供超过标准是什么时间和允许执行的许多男孩到高职位不需要上大学的。 在1961 ,其余的建筑是转换为使用作为民事权利中心和马丁路徳金在1963伯明翰之前住在站点上他的三月。 他的名字叫熊的那个房间还是可以看到你的旅游设施。 多切斯特酒店学院,一边放一只脚在过去及丰富的非裔美国人历史,有一个非常光明的前途。 近完成恢复过程将使该建筑物是由社区再次使用。 我期待着再去一次。 此站点有许多历史书的多个章节。 注: 在博物馆前面有石头的人与反收购的人的名字的捐赠给了这家很棒的自由县站点。 我鼓励你买一个。 你永远不知道谁会改变了它的生活。

On my second day touring Liberty County, we made a stop at the Dorchester Academy and Museum in Midway Georgia. This historic site is located at the corner of East Oglethorpe Highway (US Route 84) and Lewis Fraser Road.

The starting point for each tour is the museum located in a small building in front of the dormitory. Inside you will be greeted by a friendly volunteer staff and be given a brief tour. You learn about the history of the buildings, the young men that attended the school, and those that were activists for African-American education and civil rights. My tour guide, Mr. Bacon, commented on how my eyes lit up and how history “just gets in your blood.” It does indeed. Have I mentioned lately how much I love historic coastal Georgia?

Currently undergoing extensive restoration, the main building, a beautiful two-story Georgian Revival dormitory, was built to educate freed slaves after the Civil War. By 1917, the fully-accredited high school consisted of multiple buildings and almost 300 students. Unfortunately many of the buildings were destroyed by fire in the 1930’s or torn down after the school closed in 1940.

As you walk through the halls and the auditorium, you can get a feel of the building’s past and imagine the lives that were changed by the availability of such a high level of learning. Our tour guide mentioned that the education provided surpassed what was standard at the time and allowed many of the boys to proceed into high level positions without the need of college.

In 1961, the remaining building was converted for use as a civil rights center and Dr. Martin Luther King stayed on site before his march on Birmingham in 1963. A room which bears his name can still be seen as you tour the facility.

The Dorchester Academy, while having one foot in the past and rich in African-American history, has a very bright future. The nearly complete restoration process will enable the building to be used once again by the community. I look forward to a return visit. The history book for this site has many more chapters.

Note: In front of the museum there are paver stones with names of people that have donated to this wonderful Liberty County site. I encourage you to purchase one. You never know who’s life it will change.

Dorchester Academy is probably a very strange place to have a wedding reception, but it's history is extremely important to our family. My grandmother, mother-in-law, an aunt and uncle all attended this great school back in the 1920's and 30's.
Arrangements for public meetings or events can be coordinated thru the site representative. The site was used by Dr. Martin L. King as a retreat to for strategy and non-violent training sessions.

Tours of the facilities can be coordinated by visitng the Academy's web site.
