The Georgia Historical Society recently memorialized the dedication of a new Georgia Civil Rights Trail historical marker for Hart County Training School in Hartwell, Georgia with a virtual dedication and a small private ceremony. HTCS was established in 1924 for the education of African-American children, and in 1955 became the only public school for black children in the county. In 1970 the county integrated the school system, and HCTS was renamed Hart County Junior High School. The marker will help preserve the school’s history, including that of segregation, while celebrating its impact on black students in the eastern part of the state for nearly a century.
