Tuesday’s Then and Today

Posted on Feb 21, 2012 | 1 comment

Here’s this week’s “Then and Today” feature. This one is of the Summer House Restaurant in Reidsville (across from the Reidsville United Methodist Church). Although the original photo isn’t all that old, when the Brotmans opened the restaurant there a few years ago, they did some major renovations and cleanup! If you haven’t been to the Summer House yet, check them out … http://www.thesummerhouserestaurant.com/

Please send in your old, old photos of Tattnall County landmarks. If you don’t have the same photo of the “today” look, that’s okay, we’ll get it for you. Please share these old photos with us and we’ll share them with our readers. It’s always fun to look back and see what the communities looked like years and years ago! You can email them directly to me at allisoncobb@yahoo.com or to the office at mail@tattnalljournal.com.

This first featured photo is of Church Street looking toward the Courthouse in Reidsville. Notice the white church on the left? That building is still there today and is used for the Masonic Lodge. Also, the Courthouse down the street has changed quite a bit from its early days in the 1900s. Click on the image for a much larger view!
