Jean Gillis Park

It's a beautiful day in Soperton, and the leaves in Jean Gillis Park are at their peak. The Dave Gillis log house is the oldest house in Soperton, even older than the town. It once stood near South Third Street, what was the road from Mount Vernon through the land which became Soperton. The railroad station and the new town was named for Benjamin Franklin Soper, who was associated with the railroad.
