Default Clayton County back when!!!

I saw this on Facebook and I figured I'd start one here! How many on here lived, grew up, or still live in Clayton County??? I was born in Tampa, parents moved to Jonesboro when I was 4....lived in Jonesboro till I was 22....my parents(mother was born in Fayette, raised in Clayton, now lives in White) now live in Cleveland, GA. and I live in Hoschton! but the point of this thread is...."You know you are from Clayton County if you remember....." fill in the blanks....I have a few....Clayton County International Park was Indian Lakes, the Riverdale Theater off 138 was "the best theater", Southlake Mall was the only "good one" on the southside, it's TARA BLVD. not 19-41....a drive in the country was driving through Henry County, Flint River was actually clean place to fish, 138 between Jonesboro and Stockbridge was 2 lane!!!

I grew up in Ellenwood (Henry Co.), but if we went anywhere it was to Forest Park. My mom would grocery shop at the A&P, and the Old Dixie skating rink was a regular hang-out.

Lion Country Safari. I'm a Douglas co. boy, but my mom's best friend lived in Jonesboro. I also remember when Clayton co. schools were considered good.

Yeap, I was born at clayton General, not southern regional, moved to henry county when I was four and moved to high falls when I was 23. When high falls gets over run with gangsta's I guess I will moove further south. My grandpa still lives in clayton county. any way, Back in the day we would shop at A&P, fish at tara lake, Ride our gokarts at tara stadium parking lot.We used to go and get my grandparents precriptions from pete's across the street from A&P. It is ashamed to say the least what has happened to clayton and henry county.

I lived in Jonesboro in the late 70's early 80's and we went to Indian Lake all the time.... thought we were cool when we could swim out to the concrete thing in the middle of it, and it had these tiny little fish that would bite your legs when you least expected it Sour cream & onion potato chips and Bob Seger can still take me back there, even 30something years later

I also spent many days/evenings at the skating rink.... wish I were still that coordinated

Me too... when we moved from Jonesboro to Colorado, my sisters and I were all way ahead of the Colorado school we had to go to. Sad that it's changed so much for the worse!

Parents moved to Clayton when I was 2 back in '76. Things I remember Little Ceasars on Tara Blvd across from the old Winn Dixie. Riding dirt bikes up and down Panhandle with no worries. Before they built all the roads in/out to the Raceway we'd have bumper to bumper traffic on lower Panhandle Rd for a hour or two. Living so far out in the sticks we couldn't get cable TV until the early '90s because there weren't enough customers our way to support it. Fishing the Flint by what is now River's Edge. Sneaking into JW Smith before it was opened and catching big bass off the banks. Southway was our hang out spot as soon as we were old enough to drive. The 24 hour gym on Tara Blvd used to be West Lumber and was pretty much the only game in town. Summer days spent at Tara Beach begging my mom to buy Snickers and snow cones.

Still here 30+ years later but don't know for how much longer.

Don't forget about Morrow skate palace. Mr. Huff would always say "alright boys lets slooooooow it down" I was in the first graduating class of Mt. Zion High school. Things sure changed! I played baseball at rex park from t-ball through 15-16. I put MANY a mile on an 83 trans am cruzin between southway and baby superstore. I remember racing on grant road.

Born & raised in Calyton County. (1965-1998)

Yeah I remember Clayton County . While I lived in Forest Park until I was almost 7, we moved right where highway 138 goes between Riverdale & Jonesboro. I worked at the old & one that is there now Kroger (highway 138 & 85 - newer one = 85).

I remember as a kid when they shot the old Smokey & the Bandit movie. I fished the Flint right where the Bandit had jumped. I went to everything mostly that the county had to offer.
I did all the arcades as a teen (I'm 44 now) and beat everyone's score at Centipede!

I used to hit the old water park right beside the skateboard park in Lake City (Forest Parkway across from Kroger) in the late 70's early 80s. Hung out at all the teen hang outs. Got gang beaten (I deserved it) over off 2nd Street in Forest Park (rough area).

Indian Lake, Joy Lake, Shamrock, yeah Fayetteville to, knew some friends there, did it all.

Last place I lived there was in Pointe South down on the highway 54 side before I moved here up north back in '98.

I was right across 138 from you at the top of the hill on Old Rountree Road in BriarGate. Remember that one?

Also, did you ever get to go to the historic Judd's Grocery that sat on the top of the hill beside his house?
They moved his old store to Jonesboro downtown area & it's a gift shop now.

I used to talk to Judd all the time. The woods behind there used to be old crops back in the 1800s & it had old dirt roads, a few places where someone took cows.

In fact, when I was a kid, we found an old dump of antiques. Old Gospel Hymm books from the 1890s, many other things. I also hit both of the old burned down houses & found where they dumped their old bottles & such. I still have to this day a nice glass bowl that I keep change in & I've had this for 30 years at least.

My grandfather and uncle use to lease the land where Lake Kedron is now....some of those $400,000+ houses around still have the old tree stands and spikes in the trees....we'd get a deer and parade around main street in Jonesboro before taking it to t&t....

That brings back the memory of getting ten bucks for my birthday and spending 8 dollars and change on the vanilla ice tape. I can remember wearing the neon plastic sunglasses and nodding my head to the beat and singing ICE ICE BABY... too cold too cold.

Ohhh and all this was in the passenger side of my moms dodge daytona cruizin down tara blvd with the windows rolled down. man was I cool. lol

One other thing which wasnt that long ago was when hooters burned down. That was a tragic day!

You know you're getting old when you can remember the rock concerts at lake Spivey. To name a couple Grand Funk, Chicago. Remember the Pop Fest. at A.I.R. before it was Atlanta Motor Speedway? Remember when the Kiwanis had the skating rink in Forest Park, or when Butch's was just a trailer and a certain organization met there every Sat. night ? Man I do and those sure were good times but all I can say is I'm glad I don't live in Clayton County now !!!!

That's where I grew up at. All farm and pasteur land back then. Rural pretty much. We would walk to MZ Babtist Church on Sunday mornings. I got good and skint up on that hill going down to Valley hill I think it was........I remember when they built I-75. There was a dirt road across the construction zone until the overpass for MZ Blvd. was
finished. I used to hang out at Southway and the Goldmine , Indian lake and the waterpark in lake city....

What years did these groups play at Spivey, in the 70's?

I grew up in Forest Park and remember: dirt roads around Hendrix Dr Elementary School, the Sat. mattinee at the Forest Park theatre on Main St, Joy Lake, stopping at the Kwik Shop on Main St coming home from FP Jr High, riding my bike all over town with my brother and Mom didn't have to worry about us. Boy am I showing my age here! I moved away in the 70's and am glad I did but those were some good days.

My dad worked for butch for several years as a teenager. Iremember my dad telling me he saw butch a while back and went and said hi to him, and he didnt remember him, kinda upset my dad alittle since he dedicated so much time there working with him.

I believe there was a Carroll's hamburger joint in Forest Park that was a big hangout for a while. That was the first hamburger place I remember as a kid before McDonalds.

My grandfather was the Fielder on Fielder Rd. if anybody grew up in that area.
