Irwin County is a small and peaceful town situated in central Georgia. They have a very small population, having the average of 9,000. This is the place where you can still see plain green areas, which are soothing to the eyes. The town is more of a residential place and a quiet neighborhood.
Upon searching about their place I found out that education is one of their priorities being on top of the list of the projects they are targeting. They pretty much have good schools with a clean environment and structure that is conducive to learning. There was a newly opened Day care center in the city of Ocilla named the Kid’s Academy Daycare located at 172 Fitzgerald Hwy. Opening celebration was done on July 15, 2011 facilitated by Ocilla-Irwin Chamber of Commerce. This is a Christian-based program which caters to children 6 weeks to 11 years old during Mondays-Fridays, 6:00am-6:00pm, very convenient for working mothers.
They give so much value on their historical places. Buildings that are still standing over decades are preserved just like the court house in Ocilla, Georgia. It was built in 1910, renovated on May 2005 with the historical elements being maintained. When you come to visit this town you are like going back to the past. The old-fashioned structural designs made by their ancestors are still evident up to the present. It will appear as if it was just built last year because of the neatness of the building, destroyed materials are rarely seen. You will get amaze when you are able to talk to the folks, because most of the buildings are 50 years old and above already. They probably have it repaired every now and then. They are also known of their local logistic companies worldwide. They are said to be renovating this year, as their supplies increases wider warehouse will be needed.
Two businesses have also opened in the year 2011, one of which is the “Cash foe Gold” store which accepts gold jewelry in exchange of money and sells special metals and electronic facility. The other one is the Gina’s salon which offers hair styling, cutting and color and other cosmetology services.
Irwin County is a bit laid back town, their traditions are followed despite the influence of the modern neighboring towns. Speaking of structures, they have prescribed designs for the residential houses they discourage putting so many accessories on the outside of the house as they prefer the traditional pattern. I presume they wanted a very organize and neat neighborhood and I can say that they have attained it.
