    In the early 1920s, this area was known by the locals as Dyersville and was run by Joe and Mary Dyer. It is east of Dahlonega, Georgia but is on the map as Garland. It has been run by many though the years and a favorite stop on the way in and out of Dahlonega, Georgia.

    My mother-in-law Monteen Abercrombie Souther when young would take eggs to Joe Dyer’s store and swap for other things. My great great grandfather David Adams and his wife Mary is buried in the cemetery and several family members.
