US Geodetic Survey Marker

Placed on the eastern abutment of the Tallulah Falls Railway trestle over Tallulah Lake in 1932. Now located inside Tallulah Gorge State Park, on land owned by Georgia Power in Rabun County.
Tallulah Falls Railway operated between 1871 and 1955. The line was troubled most of its existence, with two well-publicized trestle collapses. The first at Panther Creek in 1898, and the other at Hazel Creek in 1927. These incidents, plus financial instability, earned the line the nickname "Total Failure".

Old House in Carroll County

If I was a millionaire I would restore this old farmhouse  and live in it myself. The roof is caving in on both sides, but she was a beauty at one time!

Rosie the Riveter Coverall Uniform

One of 3 known WWII Bell Bomber Plant coverall uniforms is located in Marietta (Cobb County). These coveralls are from a "Rosie the Riveter". They built 662 B-29 Bombers between late 1943 - Sept 1945 at the Bell Aircraft Corporation in Marietta.
Randy Huber

During World War II (1941-45) the Bell Aircraft Corporation (known as Bell Bomber) transformed Marietta from the small seat of rural Cobb... County to one of the main industrial centers of the Sunbelt. After assembly lines began functioning in the spring of 1943, Bell employees supplied the U.S. Army Air Forces with 663 Boeing-designed B-29s, the first of which were delivered before the end of the year. The government-owned plant closed immediately after the end of World War II and sat idle until 1951, when it became home to Lockheed-Georgia (later Lockheed Martin).

The Parker-Landrum House in Millen

Built by John Miles Edenfield for Hardy Ward Parker in 1894. He built the house so his oldest daughter would not have a long ride to school as the family land was farther out. It is still in the same family.

The church was founded in 1811 and this building was constructed in 1923. I don't know if it is still being used for services as a newer building is out of the picture on the left.

The Brooks County Courthouse was built from 1859–64; Because of shortages of material and labor, the courthouse was one of only two courthouses in Georgia built during the Civil War; the other is the Banks County Courthouse in Homer.
