The north Georgia city of Winder developed from the double log cabin that inspired its earlier name of Jug Tavern. Evolving from the vision and determination of Wiley Harrison Bush, Winder became a regional giant, birthed from its rich agricultural heritage and its new industries of manufacturing and transportation. By 1920, Winder was the seat of the six-year-old county of Barrow and had been acclaimed by regional newspapers as "a stemwinder" of a town. Winder's early architectural simplicity was joined by products of high style design as the city evolved from the Jug Tavern—now long gone. Like many American cities, Winder has lost some of its foundational buildings to demolition or fire. Still, many remain to tell the story of how this traveler's rest became known by 1950 as the "Work Clothes Capital of the World."
