Savannah, Georgia's recorded history began in 1733. The city came to be because there was a need to strengthen the colonies by increasing trade and also acting as a buffer zone for South Carolina as well as protecting the advancement of the Spanish coming up from Florida. Known as Americ's first planned city, General James Oglethorpe designed the city in a series of grids that made wide open streets mixed with public squares, parks, and centers for business. Savannah had 24 original squares, of which 22 survive today.

It opened its doors as Savannah's first free public school with six staff and about 240 students in October 1856. The Massie school operated for 118 years before it ended its role as a public school. In 1977 under former superintendent Saxon Pope Bargeron, there was a push to re-purpose the building, and so the Massie Heritage Center was born. To this day, it provides interpretive programs both inside the facility with educational exhibits and outside on the streets and squares of Savannah's downtown historic district.
