Screven County welcome center to remain open

SCREVEN COUNTY, GA (WTOC) – A 50 year old welcome center in Screven County will not be shut down.

Governor Nathan Deal had proposed closing it in his 2013 budget, but recently changed his mind.

Many are now breathing a sigh of relief as Georgia's last original welcome center is now added to the National Register of Historic Places.
