A Brief History of Conyers GA
In the early 1800’s the area that is now Conyers was settled. The first man in town was a blacksmith by the name of John Holcomb. Dr. W. D. Conyers, a banker from Covington bought the lasn from Holcomb for $700, only to sell the land to the Georgia Railroad and by 1845, the railroad was in full operation. A decade later, the area ammassed nearly 400 residents and Conyers was incorporated.
By the turn of the 20th century, this old watering hole had turned into a wild town, filled with saloons and brothels. This endulgent lifestyle naturally drew in a number of religious organizations, which were dedicated to saving sinners. From this you see the uprising of the Trappist Monks and a number of waht are refferred to as “sidewalk churches”.
