Old Clinch County Jail, 1894, Homerville

Built to replace a wooden structure of 1872, this stately jail was designed by prominent architect T. F. Lockwood. The Manly Jail Works of Dalton built the “jail” part. It served until 1927 when yet another jail was built. The Homerville Woman’s Club saved it from demolition and it has served many purposes over the years. I believe it’s still associated with the Woman’s Club.

    Wasn’t this the public library in the 50’s – 60’s?

    Went to many a party, wedding showers, even my own wedding shower in this building.

  3. I subscribe to your RSS feed and love your work. I’m REALLY glad you’re capturing some stuff from Clinch County where I grew up. You could spend weeks in Clinch alone finding awesome things to shoot. Let me know if you have questions about sites there!
