Ice Cream and History in Haralson, GA "(pop. 2020)"
Instead of sweating it out in a crowded parking lot or lawn to celebrate July 4th, I was invited by a friend to visit Haralson, Georgia, a former gin as in "cotton gin" town in Coweta County, about 60 miles southwest of Atlanta. arou We enjoyed ice cream, watermelon, picked blackberries around the old jail, met the neighbors and saw the town parade (2 police cars, 2 tractors and a hay bale wagon). It was a refreshing escape from the big city crowds and traffic and a reminder of our Southern roots. How many places in town can you play kick ball in the street anymore?
