Roberta and surrounds is just a nice place to live... Sounds like an oversimplification statement, but when you
consider our weather, annual rainfall, abundant ground water, city and county taxes, low crime rate, the ease of
living, plus resident civility and pleasantness you might well agree! We have a good school system too, and Macon State College is only 20 miles away. In fact we even have a Georgia State Technical Center in Roberta.
Roberta make life easier and convenient with day to day supplies and needs. The cities of Atlanta, Macon, and
Thomaston are within easy driving distance, and offer all there is to have at their various levels of city business
and cultural activity. Atlanta is huge, and of course has everything, takes about and hour and a half to drive there.

Texas state flag is still flown at the old courthouse in Knoxville even today. Dr Pemberton who invented the original
Coca Cola recipe is generally credited with doing so while in Crawford County operating a pharmacy in Knoxville.
