Jenkins Hall represents a significant piece of history in both Milledgeville and Baldwin county over the last 90 years. Since Georgia Military College acquired the building, Jenkins Hall has been utilized in various capacities, including a book and supply store. As Georgia Military College’s Preparatory School increased in size, the school decided upon upgrading Jenkins Hall as a solution for GMC’s younger students.

GSFIC managed the construction project with the building’s historic significance in mind. The renovation included faculty offices and academic classrooms, and the construction of a dining hall and cafeteria annex. Overall, the project maintained the balance of GMC’s historical aura, while offering the Preparatory School a new place to foster learning for generations to come.
