The Whacking Cane – A Lawrenceville Legend


The new city council of Lawrenceville, GA, is putting up new signs in the downtown square. No longer does one have to go hunting in poorly mimeographed books for local lore — it’s posted right at the place it happened. Love it! Here’s the story of Mrs. Philadelphia Winn Maltbie and her famous anti-liquor advocacy.

The Whacking Cane

The Whacking Cane story is right beside McCray’s tavern, a local saloon and American-standard restaurant. Saloon -> pharmacy -> bar and grill.  I do like McCray’s, though. Good burgers.
