The more things change--The more things stay the same

We love all things vintage at OCT and the history of downtown Milledgeville is always an interesting topic.  There are others who share this love of Milledgeville History and they share photos and information on a Facebook Page called Milledgeville Memories. Recently there was a photo posted there showing a scene from Hancock Street and we are sharing it below.  This photo caught our eye and we decided to check those Georgia Normal and Industrial College yearbooks (see the story here) to see if there was an ad for this establishment that would tell us more. We were delighted to find that both the 1910 and the 1914 yearbooks had ads for Wootten's. We are also sharing today's source for those same goods-- The Box Office Book Store, which is now housed in the beautifully restored Campus Theater right downtown on, you guessed it, Hancock Street. The more things change the more they stay the same!
