Jesup Arch

Jesup GA Wayne County Old Town Arch Welcome to Jesup Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2014

Kathy Powell notes that this Jesup icon was originally located on Cherry Street, which becomes U. S. Highway 341 and eventually ends up in Brunswick. She said when you crossed under this arch, you were in Jesup. It was removed due to traffic safety issues in the 1960s and later replaced by a replica in front of what is now Jesup City Hall. This restoration of the old town arch is now located beside Jesup’s newly restored depot. It’s a really nice symbol for the city, so well loved that the town holds an annual festival in its honor
