This mural highlights the historical play, Tales from the Altamaha, which has become a much-anticipated local event. It’s based on the stories of folklore and cultural history collected by Colonel Thomas Ross Sharpe. A native of the part of Tattnall County which became Toombs County in 1905, Colonel Sharpe (1893 – 1968) served Toombs County as a State Representative, and helped organize the Altamaha EMC.
