Remerton Mill Village
The town of Remerton, named for Remer Young Lane, President of Valdosta's first bank, was established in 1899 to meet the needs of the Strickland Cotton Mills' workers. Remerton was later incorporated as a textile mill town. Initially there were three streets with sixty five houses, a school and three churches. The mill owned the houses, which rented for $.25 per room. Since the plant closed in 1979, the preserved houses of Historic Remerton Mill Village have found new life as quaint shops, restaurants and boutiques. Surrounded by the City of Valdosta, Remerton still has its own government and law enforcement.

The Dosta Playhouse
The Dosta theatre was built where two stores were losts to fire (Lazarus Bros. Dept. Store and Rice's Care) and opened the spring of 1941. The Art Modern style building is reflective of the sobering depression, stripped of most ornamentation with an obsession with streaming and speed. Glass, blocks, portholes and curved corners celebrate cruise liners and the automobile age. Presently the home of Theatre Guild-Valdosta.
