Old Times Here Are Not Forgotten:

A Collection of Memories About Bostwick, Georgia

Edited by Nancy Carey Peters, Wynelle Callaway Ruark, and Amy Snow Herndon.

Bostwick, a small farming town in Morgan County, Georgia, between Monroe and Madison, was chartered in 1902. This close-knit community from its beginning in the late 1800s through World War I, the Great Depression and the Post-Depression years gradually recovered to encounter the aftermaths of World War II and the Korean conflict.

In earlier years, Bostwick was a thriving community with a railroad, hotel, bank, two doctors’ offices, five stores, two filling stations, three gins, a brick-making business and blacksmith shop. Cotton was king and this agricultural industry still survives and flourishes in a place now changed with time

In this heartwarming book, the happiness and humor displayed when conditions were hard and trials seemed insurmountable are still to be seen. Feel the friendship and love among the local residents as they interacted with one another under a variety of circumstances.

Listen to the folklore, the thrill of children’s voices, and the excitement at ballgames, dramas, and graduations. Hear the rippling and splashing of water in favorite swimming holes. Smell the aromas of fried chicken, baked cakes, and Mrs. Annie Sheffield’s homemade rolls and buns. Taste the July Fourth barbecue and experience life in the memorable Deep South.

The historic town of Bostwick is portrayed at its authentic best in this collection of remembrances filled with lively family stories and over 1,000 contemporary and period photographs.

Casebound Edition, 560 pages and over 1,100 photos.
