  Henry County has been growing so much lately that some places are becoming unrecognizable. In an effort to preserve some of the history of our community, The Times is displaying photos of Henry County from the past. If you can name the persons or place shown above, write us at and tell us about it. In the next edition, we’ll reveal the location of the picture and notes readers send us. Photo courtesy of Henry/Clayton Genealogical Society. Visit the Genealogical Society at 71 Macon Street (in the Brown House) in McDonough Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Last Week's Picture

Thanks to McDonough Mayor Billy Copeland for identifying this as “... the City of McDonough School, which housed all grade levels. My father attended this school, played basketball, and graduated in 1923. In 1937, the building was torn down and on the present site is McDonough First United Methodist Church. The County School — which is now the Henry County School Administrative Offices — opened in 1938, at which time I was part of the inaugural first grade class. As a special note, I have always wondered if College Street was so named because our graduating young men and women traveled down this road as they left the City School.”

Have a picture of Henry County as it was? Send it to us at or 35 Griffin Street, McDonough, GA. 30253. All pictures will be handled carefully and returned to owner.
