The hardware store in the foreground is a nice contrast to the old agricultural warehouses and water towers. Dot H. Brown writes that her father, J. F. Hattaway and his business partner Cecil Carroll built and operated the cotton gin and warehouses until about 1970.

Alamo has a nice memorial to its fallen heroes, located in a small park beside the police station on U. S. Highway 280. It features a bronze eagle atop a tapered obelisk surrounded by a granite wall listing the names of those who made the ultimate sacrifice. It was dedicated on 27 May 1996 by the Jenkins-Patterson Post 193 American Legion and Ladies Auxiliary.

This logo on the side of the Little Ocmulgee Electric Membership Cooperative  caught my eye. I knew I’d seen it somewhere before. It’s Willie Wiredhand, spokesman for sensible energy use. He was actually born of a controversy surrounding his predecessor, Reddy Kilowatt.

This likely began as a double-pen house with the addition coming later.
