  Henry County has been growing so much lately that some places are becoming unrecognizable. In an effort to preserve some of the history of our community, The Times is displaying photos of Henry County from the past. If you can name the persons or place shown above, write us at and tell us about it. In the next edition, we’ll reveal the location of the picture and notes readers send us. Photo courtesy of Henry/Clayton Genealogical Society. Visit the Genealogical Society at 71 Macon Street (in the Brown House) in McDonough Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Last Week's Picture

  Thanks to Sonny Copelan, Buddy Upchurch, Ted Gleaton, Richie Stahl, Susan Hargrove and Tony Scruggs for writing in to correctly identify the photo. It was also noted that Wilson’s Nursery used to be Craig’s Ballfield. You can still see the outfield lights in the photo.

  Kelly Bradley Walker tells us that “this is the Wilson Brother’s Nursery on McGarity Road in the mid to late 1990’s. Brooks and Brent Wilson gave many of my friends jobs in and after high school. Keith Carpenter, Stephen West, Jason Thompson (JT), Terry O’Leary and Joe List to name a few. The Wilson brothers are/were great role models and very knowledgeable about horticulture and many of the young men mentioned went on to have careers involving agriculture/horticulture.”

Have a picture of Henry County as it was? Send it to us at or 35 Griffin Street, McDonough, GA. 30253. All pictures will be handled carefully and returned to owner.
