Mission and History


The mission of Atlanta Grade School Friends is to restore the historic Atlanta-Miller Grade School located on Miller Street in Atlanta, Texas. In addition to renovation of the building and the continued maintenance thereof, Atlanta Grade School Friends oversees the development and management of educational programs and related activities for all ages that enhance the building's usefulness.


Atlanta-Miller Grade School is a unique WPA-era school building dating from 1936. It took 120 days to complete construction of the school, and it opened for the fall semester that year. The school was beloved by many. 


After many years of neglect, a group of former students and community advocates purchased the property, cleaned it up and stabilized the school. In 2023, the building was removed from the Preservation Texas "most endangered" list of historic sites, in view of our dedicated efforts the past few years. We are now planning a major gift campaign to fully restore the school and to secure National Register status, while also creating a modern community center for educational programming of all kinds.
