  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 Chris Southerland, David Pope and Clint Castellaw for writing in to correctly identify this as an aerial shot of the City of McDonough.

  Charles Joyner wrote in to say that, “The picture is of McDonough a number of years ago.  I can see the courthouse and its clock. The courthouse still faces Jonesboro Road (John Frank Blvd.). Across from the courthouse, it looks as if the Square is not completed to any degree.  The other street is Hampton Road or Hwy. 81.  The water tower was there for many years and in front of the water tower facing Jonesboro Road is Scarlet’s Retreat.  This building was at one time an apartment house and Walter (Shank) Cook (Trainer for the Golden Tornadoes football team in the 1960’s) lived there for a number of years.  Sometime in the late 50’s or early 60’s Bo Turner climbed the water tower and got in trouble as I recall.”


  One of our readers, Joyce Andrews has informed us that we incorrectly identified the picture in the November 6 edition of the Times. It is actually the Old Stockbridge Presbyterian Church, in the group are her grandmother and grandfather, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Clark, her Aunt Mae Lee, and her daughters Louise and Sarah Bell Lee.

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.
