1. The Ellaville Depot Marker
Inscription.  This was the fourth depot that was built in Ellaville. The previous three were destroyed by fire. This depot was built by the Central of Georgia Railroad in 1929. It was demolished by the railroad, despite the objections of the citizens who wanted to preserve it. Commissioned by Erwin and Janiece Bauder, who started The Pizza Place on Main Street in 2004. They wished to dedicate this painting to their loyal employees — past, present, and future, and to their valued customers.
