Milltown, GA (circa 1925)

Learn About the Murals

Milltown Murals are wall paintings that have a two-dimensional effect with the installation of life-szie figures of local citizens from the 1925 era. This is when Milltown's name was changed to Lakeland. In 2006, Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue visited the city where he issued a proclamation naming Lakeland "Georgia Historical Mural City." Tour information is available at the Chamber's Office in "The Welcome Center."
