Though I can’t find an origin for Uvalda’s name, its history is inextricably linked to the railroad. The town of 530 (give or take) was incorporated in 1910 and given the name of the whistlestop on the Georgia & Florida Railway.

Uvalda Hardware is one of those rare remaining independent businesses that serve the needs of small towns all over South Georgia. Very few survive in this era of “big-box” stores.

According to Leland Adams, this is no longer the location of City Hall. Before it served that purpose, though, it was the site of the first Altamaha Bank and before that the Brogdon Bank.
