    Hi Brian
    Love your work.
    You are about 20 minutes from my town, Thomaston, GA. We have many incredible homes snd buildings on the historic registry.
    One is The pre-Civil War Weaver House, located on the corner of East Lee and Bethel Streets. This home was briefly commandeered and occupied by Yankee soldiers during the war. Also the is the Pettigrew Stamps house on North Church st/GA Hwy. 19. Once known as the Mule capital of the south and home to the now defunct Thomaston Mills, Thomaston was influential in the in the cotton and mica industries in past decades.
    You may also know about The Auchumpkee Creek Covered Bridge that was completed in October, 1892 by the firm of Herring and Alford for the sum of $1,194.98. The bridge has a span of 96 feet between the stone piers and a total length of 120 feet 9 inches. It was designed by Dr. J. W. Herring.
    As the former Editor of The Thomaston Times and past assistant to the president of the Thomaston-Upson Chamber of Commerce, Lori Showalter-Smith, I encourage you to pay a visit to our sweet town. After Thomaston you may be interested in the towns of The Rock, GA and Barnesville, GA. . Barnesville was once dubbed the “Buggy Capital of the South” as the town produced about 9,000 buggies a year around the turn of the 20th century.
    I look forward to seeing our towns in your amazing blog.

    It appears the bank is still in business. Is it? I loved going to Butler. It was so hilly around there and you could see a long way off.
