Ed RiversMilltown Mural Collection
Lakeland, Georgia

Scott says: This is the town of Lakeland, Georgia.  Up until the late 1920s it was known as Milltown.  In 1998 the people of Lakeland commissioned artist Ralph Waldrop from Columbia, South Carolina to commemorate the town’s history as Milltown by painting a series of murals (over 20) in the downtown area.

The collection includes several large murals as well as life-sized renditions of the people who lived in Milltown in the early part of this century, including E.D. Rivers, who went on to become a two-term governor of Georgia.
