Though the official list of Georgia Carnegie libraries list its date of construction as 1913, I think that was just when the funding process was initiated. It was completed in 1914 at a cost of $10,000. It served the community as a library until 1999 and after undergoing a renovation in the late 1990s it became the headquarters of the Terrell County Historic Preservation Society.
