These pages are dedicated to the cotton mill town of Milstead, Georgia. I hope this site will help to preserve the rich history of this town for those who have lived there or, like me, spent childhoods visiting grandparents in Milstead.

I want to thank Prentis Ollis for the inspiration to do this site. I am following his example in what he has done with a wonderful site full of memories of a sister mill town, Porterdale, Georgia. Please visit his site by clicking here.

A memorial to Prentis Ollis is being organized on his Porterdale website.

Milstead and Porterdale are both situated on the Yellow River. Both of these towns have a special place in my heart as I grew up visiting my mother's family in Porterdale and my father's family in Milstead.

I hope you enjoy what you find here - and I hope you will share some of your own memories of Milstead with others through this site!


I am trying to update this site, it's looking dated. Unfortunately, the program I used to build it to begin with isn't cooperating with me. While I try to give it a more up to date look and hopefully make it easier to navigate, you will probably see some changes going on. I hope I can get it looking better soon. I hope you will bear with me!
