1980 Piece of History Going Down

80 1217 08
December 17, 1980

The C. D. Williams house across from the Methodist Church was being torn down. The First Baptist Church bought the property for $25,000 and received $1,000 for the house. The cleared site now is where Treutlen County's three crosses are located.  Also on the property, in 2010, is the bus barn which was built from a $20,000 bequest from the estate of school teacher Jeanette Holmes.

Others that week: Training Center building, Clayton Stephens and Frank Radford, singers at Lions Club, TPS program, basketball, City employee fish fry, Tri-Hi-Y cleaning campus lawn, Plant Telephone employees, TES students of the month, tailgating and stadium shots at UGA, Soperton Methodist Live Nativity, THS senior superlatives, and other unidentified groups.
