Mr. Emory McMillan (along with Mrs. Eula) and his jewelry store were synonymous with style and good taste in Ocilla for much of the later half of the 20th century. He was a no-nonsense gentleman who, like the best of small-town merchants, knew his community and his customers well. Since his passing in 2012, the storefront has been repainted and another business located here. To many, it will always be remembered as McMillan’s Jewelers.

    Well-remember the McMillans, and frequented their shop on many occasions of the years. Small town merchants were just that, but they were more – they were friends, fellow church members, and those who knew you from a generation or two before, too.
