    Your Extensive Photos of Georgia are extraordinary. I was in charge of most of the restoration of The Ritz Theater In Toccoa. It was named The Schaefer Center as contract requirement when the Schaefer family sold the Theater to the Arts Council at a significantly reduced price. Dr. Schaefer was a prominent surgeon who built the Ritz.The building was closed when purchased. Restoration funds were raised from community leaders. Several years later governmental entities and A Fox Foundation donation provided funds to install the present front and marquee.
