F. W. Woolworth. During the 1960s, F. W. Woolworth Comapny operated the lunch counters at its “five-and-dime stores” on a “local custom” basis – meaning racially segregated seating in the Sothern United States. As the movement to resist segregation grew, the Tupelo Woolworth store lunch counter was the scene of local protests. While other sit-ins were contentious, the Tupelo events were peaceful. In 1964, the passage of the Civil Rights Act prompted Woolworth to announce “now the company will be able to serve all its customers in all of its stores on a desegregation basis,” The Cival Rights Act was momentous for African- Americans; however. as in most of the South, it would be several years until integration were commonplace in Tupelo.
The Lynching of Anthony Crawford. In Abbeville on Saturday, October 21, 1916, a white mob lynched a black leader named Anthony Crawford for cursing a white man. a 56-year0old planter, “Grandpa” Crawford owned 427 acres of land, had 13 children, and helped establish a school, a church, and farms in the local black community. During the Jim Crow era, successful black people were conspicuous – and arguing with whites was dangerous. That day, a White merchant demanded to buy Mr. Crawford’s cottonseed for a lower price. Mr. Crawford, who used to tell his family he’d rather “throw the seed in the Penny Creek.” refused to sell. After an argument, Mr. Crawford was arrested. A few hours later, 300 white man seized him from jail and fragged him through town behind a buggy. Finally stopping at the fairgrounds, the mob stabbed, beat, hanged, and shot Mr. Crawford over 200 times – then forbade the Crawford family to remove his hanging body from the tree. Terrorized, the well established, multi-generational Crawford family and many other local black people realized that Abbeville was not safe for them. Amid continued threats, most of the family scattered North, leaving behind what their patriarch had built and carrying the painful loss of his wisdom and humor. A century later, this marker symbolizes their continued remembrance – and hope that Abbeville never forget or repeat that horrendous October day. Equal Justice Initiate. 2016.

Kimberlin. On the Brazos Ranch. Established 1855 by. Oliver Loving. Dean of Texas Trail Deivers and Pioneer Cattleman. Settled this Loving’s or Big Valley Ranch in 1855 and was granted a Homestead Prldnt by Texas in 1859, Taking advantage of the numerous free ranging and Longhorn Cattle and the Terrain of this Ranch, loving and family would roundup wild Texas cattle – driving many here where bluffs and their few rock fences provided a cheep place to hold end pasture cattle, while accumulating a sizable herd for the drive. Loving’s early drives were to Louisiana. In 1858 he trailed the first major cattle drive North through Indian Territory to Illinois. In 1866 the 54 year old Loving and Charles Goodnight, a Younger but experienced neighboring rancher and friend. teamed up with 18 cowboys to drives some 2,000 Texas cattle up on indien infested, arid trail from this area southwesterly to the Pecos River, then north through New Mexico on to Denver – latter to be known as the Histork. Goodnight – Loving Trail. In 1867 Oliver Loving was wounded by Indians and died of gangrene up the trail on New Mexico, Honoring his last request, his partner Goodnight and others returned loving’s body to Weatherford for burial, Larry McMarty;s epic novel and the now famous TV Movie “lonesome Dave” were based upon that Texas and Western Legend. After Loving’s death, this ranch was passed to his hairs, including his oldest son, James C. Loving who to 1877 in Graham, along with Captain C.C. Slaughter, founded the Texas Cattle Raisers Association to deter rustling. From Loving’s notes, the Loving Brand Book was later produced, documenting over 1,500 original early legitimate regional Cattle Owners and Brands. This historic Ranch has belonged to the Kimberlia Family since 1941 – the year first dom on the Brezos River was completed here and Possum Kingdom Lake filled. Coincidently, the scenes in Lonesome Dave of the establishment of their “Montana” Ranch were actually filmed in northern New Mexico on a Ranch owned by the Kimberlin’s now known as the Hat Creek Ranch.

The Longest Road – These Ruins are all that’s left of the original homestead of Christoffer Lange, an gentle German beer-maker who settled this land in 1841. He brewed small batches of lager from headwaters of the pedernales river (2 miles north) and stored it in a cool cellar somewhere on this property. Later generations of his family lived in this farmhouse until 1925 when it was converted to other uses. In 1967, Lange’s 17-year-old great-great grandson Conrad – who dreamed of being a writer – stowed his typewriter here and parked his bike beside this stone wall before enlisting in the Marine Corps and shipping out to Vietnam. Sadly, He was presumed killed in Quang Tri in 1968, but his body was never recovered. His parents prayed until the day they dies that their beloved “Connie” would miraculously return someday, so they left his bike just where you see it today.
Birthplace of Coca-Cola. The First glass of Coca – Cola was sold for five cents on May 8, 1886, at Jacobs’ Pharmacy, a popular Atlanta soda fountain that was located on this corner.

Atlanta businessman Asa Candler began to purchase the rights to the formula for Coca-Cola in 1888 and founded the Coca-Cola across the country. Candler sold the company in 1919 for $25 million to a group of investors that included Ernest Woodruff. His son, Robert Woodruff, led Coca-Cola for more than half of the twentieth century, expanding Coca-Cola into a global business. Today Coca-Cola is the most widely recognized consumer product in the world. Erected by Georgia Historical Society and the Coca-Cola company.

General George C. Marshall “There are few men whose qualities of mind and character have impressed me so deeply as those of General Marshall. He is a great American, but he is more than that. In war he was as wise and understanding in counsel as he was resolute in action. In peace he was the architect who planned the restoration to our battered European economy and, at the same time, labored tirelessly to establish a system of Western defense, He has always fought victoriously against defeatism. Discouragement, and disillusion. Succeeding generations must not be allowed to forget his achievements and his example.” – Winston Churchill
Chesser-Williams House. One of the oldest surviving homes in Gwinnett County, this house was built in the 1850s. This style is referred to as an I-house. The house is unique because of the beautiful, hand painted folk art found on the exterior painted decoration in the state of Georgia and perhaps the South. The unknown artist was a traveling German painter who created the artwork in exchange for room and board. The house was located on property owned by Sue and Jerald Williams and moved from its original site six miles away. www. gwinnttEHC.org

Bicentennial Celebration 1976. Medallion designed by Ben Jarrett. President Gerald Ford by proclamation urged communities across the nation to affirm the “Founding Fathers’ principles of dignity, equality, government by representation and liberty” by establishing their own style of celebrations. Borden County residents begon planning on July of 1975 to coordinate a two- day event in which the festivity proceeds would go toward a county park. The dates were set for May 29-30, 1976. Mardes Clayton made land for the park available, and the original location was north of the current school building. This historical marker marks the park location, established in 2012. Committees were formed and plans were put together that included an arts and crafts fair in the show barn and Posse building, a cookbook with historical family recipes, a wild west show in the county arena, a family history book, a local and national historical family recipes, a wild west show in the county arena, a family history book, a local and national historical pageant performed in the school auditorium, an embroidered and appliqued quilt made by women throughout the county, and a barbeque that fed 3,000. Most memorable was the trail drive that began near Justiceburg and traveled through Griffith Canyon. The final destination was downtown Gail where the trail drive showcased a parade which included Native American, cavalry, buffalo, longhorns, covered wagons, horse riders representing circuit preachers, pioneers, hinters and trappers and many floats depiction national pride in 200 years of our nation and 100 years of local history. The estimated crowd on May 29 was 10,000 people. Highway 180 was closed to traffic and stories abound about the traffic jam. Hundreds of volunteers provided a day of celebration that brought the community together for one incredible day of fun and festivities. Sunday, May 30, was called Homecoming Day, A smaller crown of 300 gathered at the football stadium to hear music and spiritual messages. The highlight of the morning was the drawing for the quilt that was won by the father of the quilt designer. The quilt, with 76 squares that represent local history, was gifted to the county and now permanently hangs in the hall of the Borden County courthouse.
