Brooklet in Bulloch County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
When the town was incorporated in 1907, Dr. Lane was elected its first Mayor. Brooklet became a thriving community in eastern Bulloch County with a school, bank, electric plant, telephone company, general merchandise stores, and a large lumber mill owned by J.N. Shearouse. His Shearouse Railroad intersected with the S & S Railroad near the center of town. Early churches were Methodist (1904), Baptist (1907), St. Marys AME Church (1907), and Primitive Baptist (1917). Little Bethel Baptist (1893) relocated to Brooklet in 1953.
