Cairo--  The Grady county historical society celebrated a part of Cairo history over the weekend.  Graco Barber shop is a facet of downtown Cairo. But no more so than its resident barber Winfred Robinson.

The man has been cutting customers hair in this very shop for his entire career of 50 years. He likes barbering, but the job comes with another perk what makes it all worthwhile.  

"Meeting different people. That's a good old honest answer there. The main thing is, most of them are your friends or they wouldn't come back," says Robinson.

Many of Robinson's customer's have been getting their haircut here their entire lives. Robinson says he'll continue doing the job for as long as he can.
