Just across East Main Street, in Triangle Park, is one of several unique sculptures located around Statesboro honoring Georgia Southern’s Eagles football team. This one, designed by Colleen Breyer and Wesley Stewart  is entitled Farmer’s Market. This neighborhood has undergone a bit of a renaissance recently and is now home to Eagle Creek Brewery, a popular brewpub and a first for Statesboro.

  1. John

    I’m speaking on behalf of the citizens of Statesboro (not the Georgia Southern students) when I say that most of us do not like those eagle statues around town! Most of the artwork on them are weird and many of the people actually from Statesboro are UGA alumni and would rather see Bulldog statues (After all, they copied UGA’s with this art project)

  2. This is the Alfred Dorman building. Dorman was a successful wholesale dry goods merchant. It was unused for many years, until a group of antique dealers rented it, then a “Catfish” restaurant that was excellent, but did not last. There was a Dorman building where the Sea Island Bank parking lot is presently, East of the bank. Dorman and his wife purchased the historic Brooks Simmons mansion on Savnnah Avenue in 1930.
