Colquitt and Miller County Georgia Attractions

Georgia's Agricultural Mural
This 100 ft operational peanut silo is painted by muralist Charlie Johnston of Winnipeg, Canada. This giant mural depicts a South Georgia farmer pulling up his peanuts to inspect his crop and decide if it is time to harvest. This enormous mural wraps around all four sides of the silo with agricultural images of cotton, corn and peanuts just to name a few.

Take a stroll through Colquitt, and see how our murals "have a story to tell." Located throughout Colquitt and Miller County, the murals are based on stories from the community.
