Highlighting the history of pottery in Crawford County Georgia

During the 1800’s-1900’s, Crawford County pottery thrived. Families with the last names of Long, Becham, Merritt, Pyles, and Dickson were well-known in the area for creation of utilitarian jugs and crocks. The clay from Crawford County and the Rich Hill alkaline glaze used by the early “jug makers” is still prized today.
