Tucker is an
Australian Terrier...(with Scottish roots, so Ann Carlton, his "mama"
says.) Tucker comes to work each and every day with Ann, who owns
Turner's in downtown Moultrie. You might see Tucker out on the leash
surveying his Kingdom of Moultrie most any day.
Members of the
library staff join The Family Tree in welcoming everyone to Moultrie and
our libraries! That's Johnnie, Maggie, Gail and Sheila!
The Bert Harsh
Park, named for former Library Board Chairman Bert Harsh, is located just
north of the libraries in Moultrie. It is unique in that it was the very
first Historic Grove in Georgia! All of the trees in the park are
"historic." Very appropriate for a park adjacent to a genealogy library,
all of the trees are descendants of trees planted by famous and historic
persons. There is a Jimmy Carter Slash Pine, a Julia Gordon Lowe Crape
Mytle, an Abraham Lincoln oak, etc.
The Bert Harsh
Park has seats and picnic tables for visitors to enjoy. Recently,
Colquitt County High School invested the profits from their plant sale
into a lovely shade garden in the Bert Harsh Park. The large tiles around
the sun dial in the park were once part of the facade of The Moultrie
Observer - our local newspaper. These tiles were in place for almost a
century in downtown Moultrie. All of the tables, seats,
sundial...everything in The Bert Harsh Park has been donated by friends of
the library in Moultrie.
The Museum of
Colquitt County History is located kitty-cornered from the library and The
Bert Harsh Park. It's open several days a week and is filled with
interesting items from our pioneer days and Indian times all the way
through the present. There is no charge for visiting the museum, but
donations are always gratefully accepted.
