Although a sleepy commmunity now, according to local residents, this was once a "…jumpin' joint…" with two motels and lots of activity.
There is a local legend about a school bus crash on the Matsell Bridge, north of town, and that the bridge is haunted.
About The School: Built in 1922 and closed in 1998. Was supposed to be turned into apartments but plans fell through. Animals and people got in and did substantial damage to the inside. With a donation, the building now belongs to the Stone City Art Foundation. Director Ian Cullis, who’s also the mayor of Robins, said he’s ready to begin work on a revival plan. “I intend to put it on the state historical register and make a plan to reconstruct the thing,” Cullis said. http://www.kcrg.com/news/local/94312744.html
