A Taste of Moultrie, Georgia

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT MOULTRIE?

  1. Moultrie is the county seat and largest city of Colquitt County, Georgia, in the United States. It is the third largest city in Southwest Georgia, behind Thomasville and Albany. As of the 2010 census, Moultrie's population was 14,268.

  2. Moultrie is an agricultural community set in the Southern Rivers part of Georgia. It is well known for its antique shops and has been styled "The Antique Capital of South Georgia". Moultrie is the home of US Senator Saxby Chambliss.

  3. The African American community has made a significant impact on the city of Moultrie over the years. Several of those making the most impact have been honored by having community buildings or parks bear their names. Former city councilman and mayor pro-tem, H. Wesley Ball's service to the African American community is commemorated by a park bearing his name. Ball served as city councilman of Moultrie from 1979 to 1991. The park was built then dedicated to his memory due largely to his contributions through the years to the growth and prosperity of his community and the city of Moultrie.

  4. Another late Moultrie resident has had a railway terminal in the Atlanta area named in his honor. In 2001, the John W. Whitaker Inter-modal Terminal in Austell was named for John Whitaker, a Moultrie native who worked with Norfolk Southern most of his lifetime. Whitaker helped to form the International Brotherhood of Railroad Employees to address workplace discrimination. He also trained as a pilot with the famed Tuskegee Airmen during World War II, but his training was not completed by the time the war ended in 1945.

  5. Moultrie is also the home of two Major League baseball players, R.C. Stevens and John Glenn; nationally recognized author Odessa Walker Hooker; corporate executive Reatha Clark King; the first Miss Black Deaf America Pageant winner Mrs. Ronnie Mae Tyson-Jones; and many more prominent African Americans.

  6. A section of Ninth Street Northwest was named in honor of Moultrie native, Ellis Hanks Jr. in 2003. Hanks received the Navy and Marine Corps Medal, which is the highest award given to a Marine for heroism in a non-combat situation. He was also the first American to receive the Finnish Life Saving Award.

  7. Both of Moultrie's middle schools bear the names of successful black educators. C.A. Gray Junior High School was named for Charlie A. Gray, a faculty member at Moultrie High for Negro Youth and Willie J. Williams Middle School in honor of its former principal. Moultrie also hosts the "Ram Round-up". The Round-up is a yearly conglomerate of the class reunions of the formerly segregated African American high schools of Colquitt County from the 1920s to the 1970s. It is held during the 4th of July holiday week. This gathering has been lauded for garnering much attention to the achievements of its black alumni and for boosting the local economy. The theme is "A History..A Celebration" and includes former schools:

    Moultrie Highschool for Colored Youth
    Moultrie Highschool for Negro Youth
    William Bryant Highschool
