The Renovation of Jenkins Hall Marks a New Era for the GMC Preparatory School
Milledgeville, Ga. – (October 24, 2019) The Georgia State Financing & Investment Commission recently completed the renovation and expansion of Georgia Military College’s Jenkins Hall. Georgia Military College hosted the ribbon cutting ceremony in honor of the completion and showcasing the upgrades.
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.
