Tarrytown, Georgia

A few historic storefronts are all that remain of the business district of Tarrytown. The area was first settled by James Irving Calhoun in the 1810s. The post office opened here in 1902 and the town was incorporated in 1912. Today, it has fewer than 100 citizens.

    My daddy, Curtis Coleman, lived here when as a young boy, born in 1912. later his family moved to Soperton. His dad was Nicholas Coleman and lived in Tarrytown, then later Soperton, where he died in 1955. If anyone reading this post recognizes the Coleman name, please notify me. I’m searching for any info on my family’s history. debcoleman54@yahoo.com.

    I am Jakie ‘s sister. I spent a lot of time skating up and down the long sidewalk in Tarrytown. When trains came thru town, the conductor would throw out candy bars.

    My dad owned the grocery store where this sign was located in Tarrytown. The name of his store (Phillips Bros Groc.) used to be at the top of the sign. I helped my Dad at this store in the early 1950’s. Jakie Phillips
