Inscription.  In 1936, a group of farmers in the Crowell area investigated the possibility of bringing electric service to the community. In 1937, they formed Taylor County Rural Electric Cooperative with a loan from the Rural Electrification Administration to serve 175 members in Taylor County. Crowell became the first community to be served by the new electric cooperative. Thus the humble beginning of Flint Electric Membership Corporation. Flint EMC now serves members in 15 Middle Georgia counties.
 
Erected 1985 by Flint Electric Membership Corporation.
