Breedlove Land Planning recently completed an 80 page report for Woodward Academy, the largest independent school in the continental United States. Founded as Georgia Military College in 1900, this extensive campus is centered on the ‘Bullring’, a historic open space. Heavy student, faculty and visitor use of this area, as well as future plans for adjacent construction, have facilitated the need to investigate the current condition of this campus centerpiece. This report will help guide the future of the Bullring while maintaining reverence for its past.
