Hulin Avenue Storefronts, Tignall

Hulin Avenue (Georgia Highway 17) was the traditional “main street” and commercial center of Tignall.

1st Street, Woodland

I hope to learn more about Woodland. The town was incorporated in 1908 but was settled long before then. It would be nice to see its small but historic commercial core listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

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.

Forest Avenue Storefronts, Hartwell

In contrast to many small towns throughout Georgia, Hartwell has an active and busy downtown, with nearly all the buildings around the courthouse still occupied.

Howell Street Storefronts, Hartwell

The structure to the right in the view above is Bailes Cobb, a popular locally-owned independent department store that’s been in business since 1929! Below (right) is The Art Center, a gallery and event space operated by the Hart Regional Arts Council.

Commercial Storefronts, Clayton

Downtown Clayton has a nice section of historic commercial storefronts, and since it caters to tourists, it’s a fun town to walk around.

Eclectic businesses have added a lot of color, such as Zeppelin’s Pub & Grill on Main Street.

The large brick building seen here was built in 2003 but a great effort was made to construct something with a historical influence. It’s really impressive, as are the mountain views in nearly any direction from downtown Clayton.
