Sayer-Norman House, Tignall

This house always gets my attention when I’m passing through Tignall. Billie Anne Anderson-Smith writes: When I was growing up(in the 60s and 70s) it belonged to the Sayer family. Then a sweet little lady by the name Gracie Norman bought it and kept it really pretty for years. She passed away with cancer. She has children in the Augusta area but I don’t know their location. The flower sign that Adam speaks of was always so pretty. She was a member of the North Wilkes Sterring Committee which is a club that is responsible for the Tignall Sign as you enter the city limits, and for the winning years of the Governer’s competition as stated on the sign. The NWSC sponsors the “I’d Rather Be In Tignall” Festival every year, the second Saturday in November.

Though it’s in its infancy, Vanishing North Georgia will follow the same format as Vanishing South Georgia, a site I hope some of you are already familiar with. I will continue to focus on out-of-the-way places and hope that this site will evolve into something useful to the backroads traveler and photographer. As I’m just beginning this journey, posts won’t be as frequent as they are on my other sites, but I hope over time to find much material to share. Thanks for visiting, and I look forward to sharing even more of our beautiful state!
