Closing as a traditional school in 1974, but remaining part of the Savannah-Chatham Public School System, Massie reopened as a Heritage Center in 1978 providing curriculum-based educational programs for school children K-12. Massie also houses several hands-on exhibits showcasing the history and architecture of Savannah.
