SOME SITES IN THE VIDEOS
Built in 1815 as an inn for travelers on the historic Unicoi Turnpike and later used as the headquarters of a 14,400-acre plantation, Traveler’s Rest has been owned by the state since 1955. Limited use and decreased tourism have resulted in decreased revenue and deferred maintenance.
Built in 1842, Central State Hospital (CSH) was Georgia’s first psychiatric hospital, chartered by the Legislature in 1837 with the intent of providing Georgians with mental illness or developmental disabilities with a safe and humane environment. At its peak, the facility had 13,000 patients and its own nursing school. It has been said that the hospital’s first superintendent, Dr. Thomas A. Green, not only persuaded Gen. William T. Sherman not to burn the hospital as he passed through Milledgeville, but also persuaded him to give some of his troops’ rations to the patients. Currently, there is an effort to restore the CSH’s cemeteries. Some of the buildings have been vacant for years and are suffering from neglect.
Located on the courthouse square in Thomaston, the Ritz Theatre was built during the height of the city’s economic growth. The Ritz Theatre has served Thomaston and surrounding towns as a home for the arts as well as an anchor on the downtown square. The Ritz Theatre continues to show first-run movies and serves more than 24,000 patrons annually. A leak in the front parapet wall has contributed to water penetrating the art deco facade. This water damage is causing tiles to deteriorate, posing a threat to the structure and to pedestrians on the sidewalk below.
