In front of the “Old Courthouse” at the intersection of Green and Monument Street, you will find “The Signers Monument” in Augusta Georgia.
“The Signers Monument” is a tribute to the three delegates who signed the Declaration of Independence from Georgia.
THE SIGNERS AUGUSTA GA
A marble slab on its southern side is inscribed with the Seal-of-Georgia and the names of the three Georgia signers.
- Button Gwinnett
- Lyman Hall
- George Walton
Lyman Hall and George Walton are actually buried beneath the 50-foot tall obelisk. They were interned from their original sites and buried beneath this historic structure.
Button Gwinnett’s remains could not be verified and are believed to be located in Savannah Georgia. Button Gwinnett’s also has another Monument in Savannah, at the Colonial Park Cemetery.
SIGNERS MONUMENT IN AUGUSTA GA
The Signers Monument is made of granite, and is 12′ x 12′ at its base, and tapers “in” as it rises up 50 feet into the air. It was designed and dedicated in 1948.
Augusta is a beautiful quiet southern town with a great love for her history.
Green Street, for example, is a street dedicated to those who lost their lives in service to this great nation from the City of Augusta, and Richmond County.
You will find about one mile of well-kept local, state and national monuments in the center of Green Street.
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Augusta Downtown, the rooms were spacious and clean, and the workers were pleasant.
The Breakfast was good and plentiful.
For Dinner, we ate at The Boll Weevil Cafe and Sweetery. We both had their Soup and Salad, it was so tasty. We finished off dinner with a Raspberry Cheese Cake which was to die for!
It is well worth stopping by and seeing the history that is celebrated by this patriotic and caring community.
