Landmarks

Walthourville City Hall

The City of Walthourville was the first to have an all-female Mayor and Council in 1974 and the first city in Georgia to have an African-American female mayor in 1978. This monument at Walthourville City Hall honors Mrs. Carrie Kent-Brown for the role she played in Walthourville being “organized by women, supported by men.”

Walthourville Baptist Church

Walthourville Baptist Church is the oldest church in Walthourville. Originally founded in 1806 under the name  North Newport Baptist Church, the Church moved to its location  on Vandiver Road in 1923. It was renamed Walthourville Baptist Church in 1952. The Georgia historic marker for Walthourville Baptist Church was erected in 2013 by the Liberty County Historical Society.

Old Train Depot

The first Walthourville City Hall was housed in the old Walthourville train depot, which was purchased from the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad Company in 1978. In 1980, the building was moved from near the railroad tracks to across the railroad tracks. After being renovated, the old depot was used as the Walthourville City Hall and Walthourville Post Office. In 2009, the old city hall became the Walthourville Police Department. Currently, the building presently houses the Post Office and Walthourville Police Department. (Source: Georgia Railroad History and Heritage)
