Florida Industrial School for Boys
Mr. George Robinson has charge of this department.
"Department number Two is primarily the agricultural section of the institution, the colored boys operating the entire farm. At the same time, though, many are learning other useful occupations such as brick laying, dairying, animal husbandry, tailoring, etc.."
"This is a general view of the campus and main buildings at Department number Two which houses over two hundred boys. This is the type of building which housed the white boys but after the lamentable fire which destroyed them in 1915 it was decided to have a much neater design."
The Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys in Marianna, Florida, was a high risk residential commitment facility operated by the Department of Juvenile Justice for male youth 13 to 21 years of age who were committed by the Court. The school originally opened in 1900 as the Florida State Reform School. It was later known as the Florida Industrial School for Boys (1914-1957), the Florida School for Boys (1957-1967), and finally the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys. The school closed in 2011.
