Haha! I think will try for some closer than going all the way to TN. Probably head east toward Augusta.

I stuck the GATOR nearby - it'll be an easy one for anyone in SW GA.

Sorry about that. I must have overlooked it. It's on the map now!

That makes 112! Getting there...

That Dade will be a MoFo. I grabbed a tag up in Trenton and put 600 miles on the bike in one day. Half of that was in the rain. It was miserable.

Fulton county

not 100% about this one, but this is the old courthouse and i did not get pics of the new one for some silly reason as it is right across the street from it and i was on its walk way taking the photos of this one.






The Fulton County Courthouse was completed in 1914 at a cost of $1,250,000, Fulton County had Georgia's first million-dollar courthouse. It was also the largest, surpassing in square footage even the Georgia state capitol.

The courthouse was designed by A. Ten Eyck Brown (Morgan & Dillion, associate architects) and built in the Neoclassical Revival/Beaux Arts Classicism style. Due to Fulton County's growing population by the 1960s additional facilities were needed for the county's government. The courthouse occupied half of a square block, so a new six-story Fulton County Administration Building was built behind it to house county agencies, officials, and the Fulton County Commission. By the 1980s, however, county government had outgrown existing facilities, so in 1986 work began on a new Fulton County Government Center -- a large complex across the street from the entrance of the courthouse. Completed in 1989, this became the home for Fulton County administrative and legislative offices. In the mid-1990s, the old Administration Building was torn down and replaced by the nine-story Fulton County Justice Center Tower.

Johnson County - Wrightsville GA







Location: Wrightsville

Date Built: 1895

Architectural Style: Romanesque Revival/Colonial Revival

Designer: J.W. Golucke & Stewart

Other Information: Johnson County's first courthouse was a wooden structure built in 1859. It is unclear how long that building was used. The county's present courthouse was built in 1895. It was remodeled in 1938, at which time the clock tower was reduced in size and substantially altered. A major restoration of the courthouse was completed in 1996.

County History: Johnson County was created on Dec. 11, 1858 by an act of the General Assembly (Ga. Laws 1858, p. 32). Formed from portions of Emanuel, Laurens, and Washington counties, Georgia's 130th county was named for Herschel Johnson, who had served as governor (1853-57) and had run as Democratic vice presidential nominee in Stephen Douglas's unsuccessful race for the presidency in 1860.

County Seat: The legislation creating Johnson County named five commissioners with responsibility for selecting the location of the county seat. The commissioners were authorized to purchase a tract of land for laying out a town, while the justices of the county's first inferior court were responsible for having a courthouse and other public buildings constructed. In 1859, William Hicks donated land for the county seat. That same year, the county's first courthouse -- a wooden building -- was constructed. The legislation creating Johnson County directed that the county seat be named Wrightsville. It was named for John B. Wright, who was one of the five commissioners selected by the legislature to select the location of a county seat. Wright, an early resident of the area, may have been involved in the movement to create a new county. In any event, local voters subsequently elected him to the Georgia Senate (where he served from 1861-63). On Feb. 23, 1866, the legislature incorporated Wrightsville (Ga. Laws 1865-66, p. 296).

At least someone got out and picked up a few this last weekend. I have got to get on the road and get some for myself.

I got that great seat and have only put about 1500 miles on it!
