The Kaolin Festival From a Different Point of view

The Kaolin Festival From a Different Point of view

While the festival goers enjoyed contton candy, funnel cake and hot dogs, my wife and I were working the Sandersville Kaolin Festival from  a whole different point of view.  We were assistiong others with providing tours of the Geneology Center and old Jail....I was lucky enough to get the assignment of providing tours of the old jail...The old jail was in use from 1891 until 1976 and provides a dorway into the past of how inmates were housed for almost 100 years.

The jail never had an escapee who made it out of the building and served our county well..the building also served as the residence of the Sheriff and his family who lived in the front part of the building while the jail occupied the rear of the building.
