Everyone in Statesboro knows what an important role United States Highway 301 has played in the growth of Bulloch County over the last 80 years. Begun in 1926, 301 was originally designed and intended to be part of U.S. Highway 17, and a spur of U.S. Highway 1. To the north of Bulloch County, 301 bore the name of "Burton's Ferry Road," and throughout the Mid-Atlantic region was known as "The Tobacco Trail."

Strands of berries are an effective way to add color across your garland.
