Where In The World Is “Worfordsburg?”



Contestants appearing on the annual National Geographic Bee that was televised last Thursday may have had some difficulties knowing where the small village of Warfordsburg is situated, but local resident Alice McKeever of Dott certainly wouldn’t have any trouble finding the small town or knowing how to spell its name. In fact, McKeever recently snapped this photo of a sign located along Cito Road in the area of Big Cove Tannery directing motorists to “Worfordsburg.” With our own unique accent here in Fulton County, there’s little doubt the creator of the sign spelled the town's name exactly as it sounds.
