A Dixie Welcome to Crawfordville, Georgia
Image by J. Stephen Conn
I have been visiting Crawfordville – or passing through it – for more than 40 years, and it seems that this mural has always been there, proclaiming "A Dixie Welcome to Crawfordville."
The mural proudly proclaims that Crawfordville is the "Home of Alexander H. Stephens, Vice President of the Confederacy and Governor of Georgia." The sign also advertises that Crawfordville has "Fine Homes, Stores, Schools, Churches as well as Factory and Business Locations." Want to start a new business where there’s no competition? They’ve got a spot for you in Crawfordville.
