Emily Strickland Wall wrote, via our Facebook page that this home belonged to the Bennett family. Spencer Bennett was a lawyer. His maiden sister, Louise Bennett taught piano there after she retired from faculty at Shorter college. Many children learned to play at that piano. I took lessons there in the 50’s and 60’s. His law office was the little building next to it.

This sign is a beacon of good food in downtown Quitman. The cafe opened in 1913 and the sign might date to the 1930s, or 1940s at the latest. Follow them on Facebook for directions and menus. They’re open seven days a week.
