Macon’s famous soul food restaurant is back. After closing its doors a year ago, the H&H reopened Wednesday. In the 1970s, the restaurant became known as a place where up-and-coming bands like the Allman Brothers could get a plate of soul food for cheap. “Mama" Louise Hudson first opened H&H in 1959 and had been serving up plates of love and soul food until the she ran into financial trouble.
This holiday weekend, communities all over South and Middle Georgia are marking the 20th anniversary of the worst natural disaster in the state’s history. In Macon, Tropical Storm Alberto hit on July 5th 1994 causing the Ocmulgee River to overflow. Macon’s water plant was completely submerged by the flood. But out of that storm came a new facility on higher ground.
