RE: Historic Plaque Ceremony, Master’s Touch Artworks, 03/02/17
TOCCOA, GA, February 27, 2017 – The fifth historic plaque in the 2016-2017 series of plaques dedicated to downtown buildings will be unveiled on Thursday, March 2, 2017 at 5 p.m., at Master’s Touch Artworks, located at 36 West Doyle Street. This plaque will celebrate the history of Green’s Bargain Annex
Serving as an accessory to Green’s already successful department store, the Bargain Annex was added on to the store around 1950 and was designed to sell cheap and discounted goods. Green’s Department Store was located on downtown Doyle Street right next to the Globe Department store, and they sold much of the same products: Men and womenswear, home goods, furniture, and various odds and ends, though with a particular eye for salesmanship.
The historic plaque program highlights ten historic buildings in Toccoa, and the remaining plaques are set to follow each month. Once all plaques have been installed, they will be added to Main Street Toccoa’s Historic Walking Tour Guide.
The Main Street Office is happy to answer any questions regarding the Historic Plaque Program. Please contact Christian Hamilton at 706.898.5777 for inquiries.
