A little bit of Irish

Our trip to Georgia took us to a quaint little town called Dublin. Yes Dublin in Georgia! I never heard of Dublin, but we soon made our way through this unique hometown USA.

Wonderful clock in the middle of town. It was in front of what used to be the Carnagie Library, which is now the Dublin Museum.
This monument was in honor of those who fought in the Civil War. It was quite impressive. The Dublin Museum sits behind the statute.
A very sweet little church stood across the street.

We were allowed to take pictures inside the museum. This was a grouping set up like a parlor room from the late 1800's-early 1900's.

Antique crazy quilts were draped over the furniture. They were very impressive.

Betty Page was the curator at the museum. She was very helpful in filling us in on the history of Dublin. We mentioned that there were some very beautiful homes in the area. She told us that as a child she lived in the big white house that was now a Bed and Breakfast.
We drove back by to take another look ~
Wow, can you imagine growing up here??

I love visiting little towns around the country. I find it interesting that many of the small towns look very similar. Their little "town" areas are so quaint and reminiscent of a simpler time. We live in such a fast paced world now, we sometimes miss the roses along the way.

Have a very happy quilting day, and remember to share a smile!

Oh, gosh! Hubby is a Civil War semi-expert so we never miss anything in the south every time we go down ... love that town ... takes care of my moments need of 'irish' & his historical thirst.

This is such a lovely area ... but then everything in the south is wonderful, warm & great people.
