Milledgeville GA Baldwin County Washington Jefferson Street Parkways Monument Original 1804 Layout of Capital City Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing North Georgia USA 2014

“In recognition of Milledgeville’s two historic parkways as true historic sites. Laid out in 1804 on the city’s original plot as integral parts of two streets leading up to the statehouse. Washington, named for the nation’s first president, and Jefferson, named for the incumbent. Planned as embellishments to the city founded to be Georgia’s capital, threatened with destruction through the years, saved by public outcry, preserved and landscaped by the Milledgeville Garden Club with the help of city officials and local contributors, treasured as tangible reminders of Milledgeville’s historic past.”
