Immediately after the Civil War, the City Council of Columbus, Georgia, passed a resolution to provide for public schools. November 19, 1866, is the generally accepted birthdate of the Muscogee County School District. In the midst of Reconstruction, the city was looking to the future, and the leaders knew that public education would be critically important. For almost 150 years, the school district has been educating children, and we have an important story to preserve and share.

In December, 2008, the Muscogee County Board of Education approved the formation of a committee to document and display the compelling story of education in Columbus.  The mission of the MCSD History Committee is to assist in the vision to preserve and display historical artifacts of education in Muscogee County on the "Legacy of Learning Wall" through

  • Wall displays in the Muscogee County Public Education Center
  • A display cabinet for significant historical artifacts
  • DVD's that catalogue and explain artifacts and portraits and preserve oral histories
  • A book (electronic or print) that tells the history of Muscogee County public education
