Approximately fifty people gathered at Massie Heritage Center on Thursday, August 4th at 5:30 pm for an open house and award celebration.   The Georgia Historical Society selected Massie Heritage Center to receive the GHS Roger K. Warlick Local History Achievement Award in the category of Media Projects for the site film, Massie School: A Cradle of Public Education.   

This 10 minute long film is used in the museum to provide visitors and members of the general public with an overview of Massie’s remarkable history, and its present day use and mission as a heritage center in operation by the Savannah Chatham County Public School System.  The film was previewed at the celebration.
