Flashback Friday: Oct. 1952

The Newnan Times-Herald

Seen here in a photo from October 18, 1952, is the Coweta Warehouse and Gin Company, located on Wall Street in downtown Newnan.

It was owned by Millard C. Farmer Sr. and remained in operation until the mid-1960s.

Parts of the building can still be seen when passing down Wall Street.

This photo was submitted by Farmer’s grandson, Mitt Farmer, who recalls playing in the cotton seeds and raw cotton as a child.
