  Henry County has been growing so much lately that some places are becoming unrecognizable. In an effort to preserve some of the history of our community, The Times is displaying photos of Henry County from the past. If you can name the persons or place shown above, write us at and tell us about it. In the next edition, we’ll reveal the location of the picture and notes readers send us. Photo courtesy of Henry/Clayton Genealogical Society. Visit the Genealogical Society at 71 Macon Street (in the Brown House) in McDonough Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Last Week's Picture

  Sharon Gronau tells us that “this is Lion Country Safari (later Kingdoms 3) on Walt Stephens Road in Stockbridge in the mid 70’s.

  James Sullivan says “this must be Lion Country Safari.  I have such fond memories of this place growing up and I am disappointed to find that there is little to no historical info about a wonderful piece of our history. “

  Buddy Upchurch correctly identified Lion Country Safari and tells us that  “the Elephant Handler is my friend Kenny Welch of Hampton. “

  Carolyn Francis called in to identify the African Safari and told us that there are rumors that lions and tigers still live in the woods around there.

  Thanks also to Henry Wentz and Wes Dodgen for writing in to correctly identify the photo.

Have a picture of Henry County as it was? Send it to us at or 35 Griffin Street, McDonough, GA. 30253. All pictures will be handled carefully and returned to owner.
