In 1994 the U.S. Department of the Interior listed the Moultrie Commercial Historic District, along with eight other structures, on the National Register of Historic Places. This tour focuses on the history and architecture of landmark buildings in the district, including the Moultrie Banking Company Building, the Colquitt Theater, the Henderson Furniture Building, the Old Jail, the Grand Theater, and the Norman Hotel Building.
Moultrie is the county seat of Colquitt County. It’s located in southwest Georgia, about two hundred miles south of Atlanta. Moultrie is at the heart of the most productive agricultural area in Georgia, generating more revenue than any other area in Georgia.
The city is rich in history. The thriving fifteen-block downtown area contains commercial, professional, governmental, agri-industrial, and institutional buildings, many with a unique and fascinating past.
The Downtown Moultrie Walking Tour was produced by Georgia Public Broadcasting in partnership with the Archway Partnership, the University of Georgia, and Colquitt County.
