s a child, I used to wonder what things would be like when I grew up – perhaps you did, too. Well, I’m not sure I ever really “Grew Up”, but I’ve gotten a good bit older and have seen a whole bunch of changes in Coweta County. It’s always easy to say that things are not the way they were in “the good old days”, but I suspect each generation has felt similar longings for the way things “used to be”.

In this issue of the Shopper, we have included an interesting article by Anna Williams about downtown Newnan in the late 1800’s. And I’ll bet you that as that generation grew older, many complained that those newly invented automobiles were ruining their horse businesses, and that telephones and moving pictures caused far too much “unnecessary socializing”. And it’s not just the City of Newnan, but the once thriving communities that have seen some dramatic changes. My wife and I married in 1969, lived in Atlanta for a year, then came back to Coweta County, and honestly, we thought things were a little behind the times here. The Alamo Theater had closed so we had to drive (back) to Atlanta just to see a movie. And while there, we would enjoy a Big Mac, as there was not a single McDonald’s here. But there had been a “Shopping Center” in Newnan for over ten years. It was only a block from the square with only 4 stores! The Newnan Country Club was just that, a nice club out in the country. Basically the west side of the “City” ended about where the water tower is now located on Bullsboro. Hwy 34 was a very curvy two-lane road that connected Newnan … So we may call with Fayetteville. Peachtree City didn’t exist then, but there were three little those earlier times the “good old days”, country stores at Thomas Crossroads where one could buy gas, bread, some but Coweta County now has much more cheese crackers and a sack of tomatoes or apples. And the only way to get to to offer than it has ever had. Atlanta was to drive up Hwy 29 through Palmetto, Fairburn and College Park, as the “expressway” had not yet reached Coweta County.

Senoia, Sharpsburg, Turin, Grantville and Moreland were still thriving rural communities with a rather “relaxed” way of living, which I have come to enjoy so much. (I hope they can be successful in trying to keep things that way.) And our county map was dotted with other, even smaller, communities such as Madras, Welcome, Roscoe, Sargent, Arnco, East Newnan and Raymond and Harrelson, which have now been almost absorbed by the developing rural subdivisions. So we may call those earlier times the “good old days”, but Coweta County now has much more to offer than it has ever had. We can purchase almost any goods or services we need with more convenience, our new neighborhoods are attractive and up to date, and our county leaders are seeing to it that this growth is going in a positive direction. We are replete with medical care and prosperous businesses. New schools and colleges are being constructed, and our entertainment and cultural arts are of high quality. Yes, we may be a little more spread out but Coweta County is still a pretty darned good place to live. And Nadine and I will not be moving back to Atlanta!

Joe Post Script: Grandpa lived in town but owned a hundred acres on that curvy little narrow road going to Fayetteville. It was the northwest corner of Thomas Crossroads and cost him less than $10,000. It’s a shame he forgot about me when he made his will!

Missed The Spring Selling Market? Most sellers are coached and geared up to have their house on the market before the spring selling season, while in reality, life gets in the way, there are projects that still need finishing and next thing you know, you’ve missed the season.

ically the best time to sell, it’s not the only time. Yes, the experts are continuously saying list now, rates are increasing, buyers need to get settled before this or that … the truth is, buyers need houses all year long.

It’s easy for a seller to say, oh well I don’t want to do that because I might not choose what the next owner would like. Guess what? IF they are interested in a home that needs updating, they are going to reduce more off the price of the house than it would have cost you to do the work before you listed. If you are trying to maximize your asking price, that work needs to be completed.

Keep in mind though that the construction business has started back up with a bang, so it’s still essential that you have your projects and repairs completed, updated your fixtures and stage the house to compete. Buyers are going to compare So don’t panic about missing “the new housing to owner occupied and selling season”.

National award given to local Home Helpers By Joey Howard, The Coweta Shopper

When it comes to small business, national recognition is hard to come by. That’s why when Home Helpers of Georgia and Alabama took home The Pioneer Award last week from a national conference, it was big news. Beth Dow and her husband Phillip are the owners of a local Home Helpers franchise here in Coweta, Troup, Muscogee and Lee (Ala.) Counties. It was their local senior-care franchise that earned The Pioneer Award for exemplifying innovative thinking and creativity in the pursuit of excellent customer/client care. “To know that out of 300 franchise owners that represent close to 600 different territories, that we ‘stand out’ … well, that’s just cool,” Dow said. “We have been in business for seven years now and this has been the hardest thing I have ever loved to do.” Dow, who contributes a Senior Care Q&A column to The Coweta Shopper, says her company started with a staff of only one employee in Auburn, Ala. “We’ve grown to a staff of 90 in Coweta, Troup, Muscogee and Lee Counties,” said Dow. “Being recognized for our hard work and dedication to our clients by our franchise is affirming and humbling.” Home Helpers Franchise Systems recognizes its franchise owners annually at a national conference, this year held at Las Vegas. The franchise system identifies those franchise owners who truly exemplify the system’s spirit and mission while effectively growing their businesses, doing so while supporting the system as a whole. “Our goal at Home Helpers of

Also Hearing Enhancers for $699 each! Beth Dow, owner of Home Helpers of Georgia & Alabama, holds The Pioneer Award which was given to the local franchise at its national convention.

Georgia and Alabama is to help (our senior customers) to stay in the least restricted environment, enabling you to heal, recover or age to your greatest potential,” Dow said. “We provide home care, where ever your home may be.” “We can provide services such as cooking meals, cleaning homes, providing transportation, all the way to providing personal care – such as bathing and dressing. Some folks have called us ‘Assisted Living at Home’ and even ‘Nursing Home Prevention.’” Beth and Phillip have been married for 36 years and live on a family home in Lone Oak. They have two sons, one daughter-in-law and one grandson. Beth and Phillip are both Certified Senior Advisors and Beth is certified in Alzheimer’s Care and Geriatric Case Management.

After 15 years at one location, 1st Franklin Financial of Newnan has moved to its new office next to Publix on Bullsboro Drive. 1st Franklin Financial specializes in loans – personal, starter and consolidation – as well as sales finance purchases. According to Branch Manager Angie Starling, the reason for the move was to actually downsize in office space and be more conveniently located near the Bullsboro/Newnan Bypass intersection. Five employees make up the 1st Franklin Financial staff and though it is a new location, it’s the same friendly folks. 1st Franklin Financial has served the Newnan-Coweta area since 1976.

Newnan’s T hriving Downtown: 1880-1911. ater opened during the era of silent films, and can be seen on a 1911 map labeled “moving pictures”. The movie theater featured one screen and 241 seats.

Newnan was a surprisingly prosperous town in the late 1800s. The same railroads that made Newnan a logical choice for a hospital town during the Civil War supported bustling industries in textile production and manufacturing. Fire insurance maps from the 1880s to 1911 show that Newnan’s downtown was the location of beautiful homes, cotton warehouses, and steel manufacturing, as well as venues for entertainment and a wide variety of available goods and services. Although some of Newnan’s historically significant architecture built during this era has been lost through the years, much of it can be seen in the present day. The 1868 Virginia House Hotel is one of the oldest surviving structures in Newnan’s downtown. The foundation of this hotel was the former Golden Star Hotel, and dates to the mid-19th century. This structure operated as a hotel for over 90 years and is now used for commercial offices. It is rumored that several famous individuals including Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate States of America, once visited this hotel. Built in 1895, the Murray Warehouse Block is a rectangular, red brick building that once served as a cotton warehouse. The building features white trimmed dentil molding, granite belt courses, brick piers, and cast-iron storefronts. During the late 19th century the Murray Warehouse Block conducted cotton trading business as well as printing business. The building currently stands in its original location the corner of Brown and West Washington Streets. Although it is not used for its original purpose, it serves as a reminder of Newnan’s roots in the cotton industry.

A few doors down, the space that now houses The Alamo Theater at 19 West Court Square was built in 1880 as a commercial building, home to a harness shop, general store, and a butcher through the decades. A blacksmith, and later a barbeque stand once occupied the alley space behind. The building was converted into a movie theater with one screen and 551 seats in 1928. View of South court Square and the Southern School of Telegraphy from the eastern corner of the court square. Photo courtesy of the Vanishing Georgia Collection of the Digital Library of Georgia.

some common architectural trends for downtown churches built in Georgia during this period. Congregations that had previously worshipped in log cabins in the town’s early years prospered and built larger, more permanent sanctuaries for their growing congregations. Newnan’s First Baptist Church was founded in 1828 by seven pioneers to the area. Construction began on the church’s previous historic sanctuary in 1845, and was later used as a hospital during the Civil War. By 1884 First Baptist outgrew the old, wood-frame church and built the historic sanctuary seen today. Construction was finished in time for First Baptist to host the Georgia Baptist Convention in April of 1886. Another one of downtown Newnan’s historic churches, Central Baptist Church, on the corner of Broad Street and Brown, was built in 1898. This beautiful church features similar elements of late gothic revival architecture as other historic Newnan churches including masonry construction, square corner towers, and stained glass.

Downtown Newnan continues to be a thriving commercial area when many small town squares in Georgia are struggling to adapt to changes in the American lifestyle since their heyday. Newnan’s historic commercial district is home to restaurants, shopping, and a wide array of businesses much like it was from 1880-1920 while meeting the needs of a growing and changing population. The historic Newnan Hospital, built in 1925 will soon be the latest location for the University of West Georgia in Newnan. This practice of adaptive reuse ensures that historic structures are preserved for future generations by being converted to meet the needs of the community. The buildings built in Newnan’s historic court square during the late 1800s stand today as a reminder of the town’s unique history and bear the markings of many changes and trends of the decades in between. Perhaps most importantly, Newnan’s historic downtown provides current citizens, old families and newcomers alike, with a tangible link to the past through its physical structures. Newnan’s historic districts give our community a distinct character and foster a sense of place for those who are visiting as well as those who are lucky enough to live among such rich history.

The Mount Vernon First Baptist Church is credited as being the first African American, Baptist congregation in Newnan. The beautiful, brick, gothic revival church located on Pinson Street was built in 1899, 36 years after the congregation’s founding.

Above is a photograph from the 1890s, taken from East Court Square looking West, showing the original location of the Confederate Memorial. East Court Square in 1889. At this time, the Confederate Memorial statue sat at the corner of Jefferson and Washington, looking South. Photo courtesy of the Vanishing Georgia Collection of the Digital Library of Georgia.

Today, the Confederate Memorial statue can be found on the east side of the Coweta County Courthouse, however, that is not its original location. It once stood in the middle of the street on the intersection of Jefferson and Washington. Due to increased automobile traffic during the 1920s, the statue was moved from the center of Jefferson Street by sliding it along with logs, then placed on a block of ice so that as it melted, it lowered the statue into place in it’s current spot! Alongside these commercial buildings, Newnan built several beautiful historic churches in the late 1800s and first decade of the 20th century, three of which are still used today. These structures share

With the Male Academy and secondary school for women, known as College Temple, education was not overlooked in Newnan. Newnan’s Carnegie Library was the first Carnegie Library in Georgia, and is the only one in the United States that has returned to its original use. Built in 1903, the Carnegie Library features a reading room, meeting space, and hosts a number of events for all ages. This building has not undergone any significant changes to it’s exterior since it’s construction and therefore looks very much like it did over a hundred years ago. Some of the original hexagonal pavers and granite curbing can still be seen in the sidewalk outside the Carnegie. The Reese Opera House, which opened in early 1883 welcomed comedians, singers, and other performers to Newnan, but also housed retail such as a jewelry store, dry goods, a tobacco store, and a grocer over the decades, and later was the location for the Southern School of Telegraphy. The Gem Theater was once located a few doors down from the Alamo’s current location. The the-

Before the present day fire station next to the Municipal Building served Newnan’s downtown, the historic fire station was located on LaGrange Street, where Smart Solutions Medical Supply is currently located. Photo courtesy of the Vanishing Georgia Collection of the Digital Library of Georgia.

Cook’s Pest Control finding its home in Coweta County By Joey Howard The Coweta Shopper If you ask District Manager Jason Mooney about the jingle, he simply says “They should play that all the time.” No doubt, if you’ve lived in Coweta County for any length of time, you’ve heard the Cook’s Pest Control jingle via a TV or radio commercial. “Looky, looky, looky, here comes Cooky ... Cook’s Pest Control.” “It just sticks in your head,” said Cook’s Mooney. “I’ve had people when I walk into a place - actually start singing that to me.” Mooney heads a staff of 23 at the Cook’s Pest Control Sharpsburg office, located at 3500 Hwy. 34 East in Thomas Grace Plaza. It’s a district office that serves much of South and West Metro Atlanta. “We moved the office from Fairburn,” Mooney said. “The location was better and the accessibility was better. We cover not only Coweta, but Fayette, Douglas, and Carroll Counties all the way down to Columbus.” “But we truly love it here. Coweta is a nice, growing area and just seemed to be the right place. We’ll eventually build a permanent facility and I’d just soon build it here. Our overall plan is to continue growing, which we’ve done here in the last year or so, when our staff had only 16 employees.” Cook’s Pest Control handles the usual suspects – termites, ants, spiders, mosquitos, bed bugs, carpenter bees, nuisance birds and rodents. And Mooney says that termites are actually in a different category. “We have a different department just for termites,” he said. “Termite just focuses on termites, because that’s its own little problem and we have to address it differently.” Anyone that is interested in a service which Cook’s Pest Control provides gets a Free Home or Business Inspection. Even though the inspection is free, it’s critical in determining a course of action needed.

Encouraging Words

Can We Change? Q

“Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have control over instead of craving control over what you don’t.” ~ Steve Maraboli


“Some changes look negative on the surface, but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

“We want to see what’s going on,” Mooney says. “We can determine what the problem is and where it’s coming from. That’s the first thing in pest control ... know what you’re treating for. We can’t just go in and willy-nilly spray. We want to make sure we’re focusing on what the problem is.” “If you are having a problem with ants, we need to focus on taking care of the ants. What kind of ant. If its roaches, what kind of roach. That’s going to determine our treatment methods. Even though an ant is an ant, they eat different things. A carpenter ant is going to be interested in a different thing, than say a fire ant.” Occasionally, pest control can run into an emergency situation. “Bees are a big thing as are wasps and hornets,” Mooney says. “It’s something people really get freaked out about. And it’s something that really scares people, especially those with allergies. In that case, it is an ASAP-type thing.” Mooney feels two areas really separate Cook’s Pest Control from its competition - training and customer service. Mooney says people are probably surprised when they find out just how much training Cook’s technicians undergo prior to working in the general public.

“Our technicians typically have 160-plus hours worth of training before they go into the field,” Mooney says. “Most companies don’t do that. We’ve hired people from other companies that say ‘I rode with a guy for two days and then they stuck me in a truck’. We’ve got computer training that’s very extensive. We send our techs to Decatur, Ala., for a week of training in class and hands-on.” “And Cook’s actually built a house where we do more training. It has almost every condition that we would run into out in the field. It’s got everything we would need to train our people.” Mooney says the customer service factor is of prime importance in doing business. “When I’m interviewing someone to become a part of our staff, I ask them if they know what business that we’re in. They say ‘pest control’. I say that’s the industry we’re in. The business we’re in is customer service because customer service is how we get paid. A happy customer will always pay their bill. An unhappy customer ...” “If someone is unhappy, they are always welcome to call us. We will always make additional trips to make sure they are happy. That is paramount.”

“We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel secure in the pond you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.” ~ C. Joy Bell


“No matter who you are, no matter what you did, no matter where you’ve come from, you can always change and be a better version of yourself ”. ~ Madonna


“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come; the old has gone, the new is here.” ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17
