In commemorating the 200-year history of Walton County, a committee was formed last year to organize a number of events to take place in celebration of the community’s bicentennial. These events are set to begin this month, with Loganville the first city in the county to kick it off. This will take place on Jan. 23 following a ceremonial flag and proclamation that will be presented and read at the Georgia State Capitol. The flag will then make its way to the City of Loganville, the first stop on its journey. It will then continue through each of Walton County’s cities before ending its journey at the Historic Walton County Courthouse in Monroe on Jan. 30, 2018.
The actual 200-year-anniversary of the formation of Walton County will be celebrated on Dec. 15, 2018 – 200 years after it all first began.
On Jan. 23, the flag will be raised over Loganville City Hall at 11:30 p.m. where it will remain overnight. At 9:30 a.m. the following morning, Jan. 24, it will be lowered and a small parade will take it up Main Street where it will then make its way to Between. Full details of these events in Loganville will be made available in the coming days. The community is invited to join in these historic celebrations.
Each city will take part in these opening celebrations this month before the county-wide celebrations begin. Click or tap on this link for more on Walton County’s Bicentennial Celebrations as featured in the Fall Winter issue of Walton Living Magazine.
