  1. My father, Sam Fussell, contacted the Georgia Chamber of Commerce in 1949, soliciting a recommendation for a Georgia town needing a hardware store. Their reply was Eastman, and so the year I was born, in 1950, he removed his family from Orlando, FL to this farming district and opened Fussell Hardware, which was right down the street from Citizen’s Clearing Bank and across the street from the cotton gin. The bank handled all of the hardware store’s banking needs, and the building , it appeared to me as a young child, was quite regal!
    Fussell Hardware closed its doors for the last time in the spring of 1968. The store’s location is now an apartment complex.
    Thanks Brian!

  2. In the late 80’s, the second floor was used as a karate school owned by a man who’s name I can’t remember. I was a student of his and remember going there for lessons.
