On Sunday afternoon, the Howard Community Club celebrated the 100 year anniversary of the building they have called home since 1945.
But, before the building was used as the meeting place for the Howard Community Club, it was a school.
"Oh heaven knows how old this black board is...That's right, because it was here when we were," Bill Hollis and Tossy O'neal Alston remarked as they looked around their old first grade classroom.
The pair have been friends for over 80 years and attended grade school together in the building that was celebrated for a century of use by the Macon community on Sunday afternoon.
Harris and Alston say the classroom inside the Howard Community Club looks nearly identical to the room they remember walking into in 1933.
