Forsyth, Georgia was my final small-town stop before committing to the long drive south on Interstate 75. It’s a nice little town with a big town square…
… surrounding the Monroe County Courthouse.
Among the storefronts that surround the courthouse, you’ll find the Rose Theater. It was restored in 2005, and is now home to The Backlot Players.
[tmt_info =””]The Rose Theater building was constructed in 1904, and used as a grocery store until the 1940’s, when it was converted into a movie theater. In the 70’s, somebody got the great idea to rip off the roof and create an open-air bar — so obviously, it needed a great deal of restoration! †[/tmt_info]
