Couple Finds Historic Photo While Dismantling 1920s Barn in Whitfield County


Antonio and Karen Peters of Ellijay hold a historic photo showing Confederate veterans at the old Whitfield County Courthouse during a 1909 reunion. Antonio found the old photo in a side room of an old barn on Riverbend Road in Whitfield County that he was tearing down to repurpose the wood to make furniture and bird houses. The couple donated the photo to the Whitfield County Board of Commissioners, who plan to give it to the Whitfield-Murray Historical Society. (Photo by Mitch Talley).
