Emanuel County, Georgia, is an area rich in history and heritage. In Emanuel County, Georgia, Sam Smith, Dr. John Derden, and Dr. Robert Overstreet, along with the Emanuel County Historic Preservation Society, have created a lovingly crafted look at the county and the people, places, and events that have shaped its history. Scenes of daily activities, from school and civic life to turpentine and moonshine distilling, come alive within these pages. View towns and communities such as Swainsboro, Twin City, Graymont, Adrian, and Garfield as they appeared years ago, and visit early businesses such as the White House Cafe and Barber Shop, the Pierce Hotel, and Franklin's Hospital. Meet the families of the area such as the Colemans, Durdens, and Brinsons, all of whom have played an important part in the county's history.
