BOE designates former school as surplus

MILLEDGEVILLE —  

The Baldwin County Board of Education approved to declare the Carver school property as surplus during Tuesday’s regular meeting.

Located at 435 E. Walton St., the property consists of eight acres of land at which the former Carver High School building currently sits. 

“We don’t plan on doing anything with the property; our goal is to sell it as is. Whoever buys the property can utilize it as they see fit or renovate the existing building,” School Superintendent Geneva Braziel said. “We could demolish it and sell the land, or sell it with the building on the land.”

Carver High School was originally built at its current site in 1949 before transitioning into an elementary school years later.

“In August 1948, the Carver High School building was burned down completely and at that time, it wouldn’t have been in the school board’s best interest to rebuild the building on that site. A company purchased that lot, but I don’t know where that site was located. The old Carver High School initially housed approximately 250 black students,” Braziel said. “GNETS was housed in there and they closed around 2010 and that’s the last time that building was used for anything.”

The property will be advertised on the Baldwin County school’s website and in The Union-Recorder Friday and will run through Friday, April 26.

“We will advertise for 12 days and we’ll take bids during that time. The deadline for sending bids is by 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 30; anything after that will not be accepted,” Braziel said. “There’s plenty of opportunity at the Carver building. With no community center to come to in that area where at-risk kids are a huge target, there’s a lot of potential. With so much historical value, Carver has served many people in this community all the way through their high school education.”
