Georgia Rug Mill on Highway 48 just inside the Summerville city limits has been demolished, but you can tell from this photograph how large a facility it once was. Near the top left sits the newly constructed Chattooga High School which dates this photograph to around 1965. As of this writing, the school building shown here will soon be replaced and meet the same fate as Georgia Rug Mill.
(Do you remember how the
mill installed Christmas lights from the top of the water tower to the
ground to mimic a Christmas tree?)
