Eastman Depot

Eastman DepotA railroad station stop of the Macon and Brunswick Railroad was constructed in 1869. The president of the railroad was William Pitt Eastman, an industrialist. When Eastman visited the new stop, he purchased land on both sides of the line and laid out a town. William Dodge, president of the Georgia Land and Lumber Company, funded the building of a courthouse in exchange for the county being named after him.
