Depot Street, Hartwell

Depot Street is a great example of revitalization and repurposing of historical structures. Colorful facades add to the appeal.

The street, a block off the courthouse square and highway traffic, is very pedestrian friendly.

There’s an artsy feel, as well, with the Hart County Community Theatre and High Cotton Music Hall (above)  adding a cultural vibe.

Hart County Community Theatre, Hartwell

This iconic building originally served as a livery stable but is best remembered as the Weatherly Furniture Company. Since 1983, it has been the Hart County Community Theatre.

Hart County Courthouse, 1971, Hartwell

In a downtown anchored by historic commercial storefronts, Hart County’s 1971 Modern courthouse is anachronistic. Though I’m not a fan of the style in its context here, the grounds are very inviting and pedestrian friendly. This is the fourth courthouse to serve Hart County since its creation in 1854.

Vietnam War Memorial, 1987, Hartwell

Located on the grounds of Hart County’s courthouse, this moving memorial was one of the first such public installations dedicated to the Vietnam War in Georgia.

From the foothills of northeast Georgia to the jungles of Vietnam we remember the ones who gave their lives.
