The original Dewey School burned in 1923 as reported to the Bartow County School Board on May 1, 1923.  After community input, the Board accepted a proposal to swap the one acre of land on which the burned out school sat for one acre elsewhere in the community.  Mr. W. O. Allen was the donor and the Dewey Baptist church received the old school property. The Dewey School was located on Land Lot 217, 5th District/3rd Section.


Research on this school is incomplete.
