New City Hall for Brooklet

What would you do with an old building? Some might tear it down, but others are finding a way to preserve history and breathe new life into the structure.

That's just what they're doing in Brooklet, in Bulloch County, where they're very proud of their new city hall. They showed off the building last night. It was once the cafeteria for the old Brooklet Elementary.

"Part of it was built back in the early '30s or '40s, so it was old and it was worth saving," said city council member Randy Newman. "We saved the shell and redid the interior and did a little on the outside too."

They have 4,000 square feet. That's quite a bit of breathing room, four times the old building. And they had to share that with the police department.

We'll be back in Brooklet Saturday morning for the annual Brooklet Peanut Festival parade. It steps off at 10am. And if you can't be there in person, you can catch it all live on WTOC.
