Tolleson Tree

Updated: May 19

This 1500-year-old cypress tree was cut from the Ocmulgee River bottom in the 1940s by J. M. "Cap" Tolleson for his new motor court at the corner of Main and Ball Streets. For years this old tree was a favorite of Perry children who often climbed inside to see the postcards sold from Perry's first "Welcome Center."
