The Valdosta Daily Times

VALDOSTA — Today is the last day to purchase at a discounted price a pictorial history book of the early years of Lowndes County.

By The Valdosta Daily Times and First State Bank, “Lowndes County Memories” is a collection of personal photographs from 1800 to the 1970s submitted by Times readers and photos provided by the Lowndes County Historical Society and Museum.

“Lowndes County Memories will take you on a trip back in time. Broken up into chapters, this book will walk you through all stages of the development and progression of our education systems, hospitals, churches, roads, community events, our people and so much more,” said Rachel Thrasher, Times advertising executive. “Unlike the many other books published about Lowndes County, this book was put together using the photo collections of our neighbors, friends and family. There will be photos never published and that may never be published again.”

“Lowndes County Memories” can be purchased online at or by calling (229) 244-1880. Orders placed by the end of today, Oct. 16, will be discounted by $10, for a cost of $29.95. After today, the cover price will be $39.95.
