Flags around town in Eatonton, GA

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668 GREC# 169695

It always does my heart good to head downtown.  Last week I had to pop in the court house to renew my notary for four more years.  And I didn't take my camera with me, but noticed how pretty our little town looked with flags flying from the lamp posts on the side walks.  So on Sunday when I went to church and then to eat with my parents I headed back down town to take a few shots. 

A few years ago where the hospital where I was born used to stand ... which later became a doctor's office, then the board of education and 4-H headquarters and county extension office.... the building having become more costly to maintain was closed and torn down.  What our county did to take it's place is lovely.  It's a town tribute to citizens who served.  And the bricks that contain gold stars are those lost in combate.  It's a nice place to sit quietly when no one else is there and remember those we have lost. 

But here are some nice shots from out little town.

Hi Tammy-I love that your county, instead of tearing down a building and leaving nothing, chose to add something so beautiful to the whole community.

How wonderful! And I agree with Kathy Streib - it's fantastic that the county replaced the building with a town tribute. Kudos to them!

So many great-looking flags in your area!  I had no trouble finding flags in my area to photograph for this challenge.

Tammy Lankford, - Living in a community that has strong leaders who plans for the future, such as what yours did to replace what needed to be torn down with something greater standing for the people who sacrificed their lives for our freedom speaks volumes about the respect and commitment to sustain and maintain pride of community was a great example for future generations to learn about their community. Through your story and photos, I felt the heartbeat of your small but mighty town.

Tammy Lankford, I have enjoyed seeing photo's of Memorials with our flag flying proudly to honor our fallen and all who have served.  Yours has a very warm appeal to it.  Thank you.  m
