Created in 2014, the MF School Archives holds records, documents, photographs, and artifacts relating to the Maroa community and the Maroa-Forsyth School District. Materials in the Archives date back to the late 1800s and include a variety of written, digital, and audio/visual items. This material contains a wealth of information about the Maroa-Forsyth School District history, the smaller one-room schoolhouses which consolidated to form the district, former pupils, staff, programs, athletic and extra-curricular activities, and other items of historic interest.
In an effort to make these records more accessible to students, faculty, community members, and reseachers, we created this website, which includes digitized images, an inventory of materials stored in the Archives, and an access point for those doing research. The rich history of our district can be seen through the many photographs collected on our Flickr page, in the online Yearbook collection, and through the various collections housed in the Archives Room. In addition to the website, preservation work is ongoing – reboxing, refoldering, and storing items in protective materials.
The Archives Room is currently closed to visitors due to construction at the school, but if you have any Maroa-Forsyth School materials that you would like to donate or any research requests, you can email the archivist at MFSchoolArchives@gmail.com.
You can also follow the MF School Archives on Facebook, Twitter.
