Historic Worley B&B Inn (c.1845)
Table Of Contents
The Historic Worley B&B Inn was built in 1845, and was once the home of Captain William Jasper Worley and his family. During the early 1860's, the Inn stood stoically as young men and boys marched off to Atlanta to enlist in the Confederate Army and fight for their cause. One of those men was William J. Worley, who was elected Captain of Company D of the 1st Georgia State Line Regiment.
