Across the metro, kids are gearing up to head back to school starting today (or, for some, last week). For the City of Atlanta, that means dozens of school buildings are naturally prepping for the return of students.
But interestingly, some of the city's oldest school buildings aren't welcoming kids this year — and haven't in a long time. With this map, we set out to find a few of Atlanta's historic school buildings that have been repurposed in various ways over the years. In most cases, these were pioneers on the city's adaptive-reuse scene.
Granted, this list is just start. What other converted old schoolhouses are deserving of recognition around town?
