Our Stories

Town residents believe Thomas Evans settled the community at the crossroads of Loganville, Social Circle, Covington and Conyers because of the inviting shade of a group of walnut trees. 

 

Locals also fondly remember Atlantan Dr. Grady E. Clay, whose attachment and care his childhood town remained steadfast.

 

 

The town is also the birthplace of the famous blues musician Robert Hicks, more commonly called Barbecue Bob, creator of "Barbecue Blues," which sold 15,000 copies when it came out.

 

 

We are also the birthplace of Ms. Bazoline Estelle Usher. She was a teacher, principal (which was a pretty big deal for a woman at the time, especially an African-American woman!) and she became the Supervisor of Education for Minority Pupils in Atlanta, Georgia. She also led the group of about 25 women who created the first African-American Girl Scout troops in Atlanta.


  


Future Plans

Read a short excerpt from the UGA Charrette for Walnut Grove.

 

"Research has shown that people feel more comfortable in town centers where buildings frame the street. As the City of Walnut Grove moves forward in creating a town center new buildings must sit close to the street, framing the roadways, creating a more pleasant pedestrian environment. Sidewalks should be buffered from the business of the streets by treelined medians and wide sidewalks."
