A Festival to Help Preserve History: The Restoration of Oak Park School

The Oak Park School, once a bustling hub for the Emanuel County school districts, particularly in Oak Park, Georgia, stands as a testament to the community's educational heritage. Remarkably, this historic structure was never demolished, but over time, it has experienced significant wear and tear, with its once-sturdy framework gradually succumbing to the ravages of time.

Enter the Oak Park Shiners, a dedicated group renowned for organizing the annual Oak Park Moonshine Festival. They have passionately taken up the mantle of reviving this venerable institution, embarking on an ambitious "Restoration Project" to breathe new life into the school. The restoration efforts are funded by the proceeds from the festival and other initiatives spearheaded by the Shiners, demonstrating their commitment to preserving a vital piece of the community's legacy.
