Villa Rica in Carroll County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
The Fullerville community has a proud and rich background made up of hard working people who saw the mills as a step up from the sharecropper labor. Fullerville was granted a charter from the State of Georgia in 1916. Before Fullerville, Georgia was annexed into Villa Rica, Georgia in 1956, Fullerville existed as its own town for 45 years with a bustling industry that included a cotton mill, a hosiery mill, a company store, local eateries, a lumber yard
The PBB Fullerville Jail Committee was founded by Perry Bill Bailey who is a former Fullervillion himself from 1958 until 1969. He and his committee set up fundraisers to preserve this historical Fullerville jail in 2009. The committee was successful in getting the flags and the Fullerville jail recognized for its place of history in this town which was once known as Fullerville, Georgia. Fullerville is now recognized as a community of Villa Rica, Georgia.
