MOULTRIE- A Moultrie landmark is turning 100 this weekend, and a lot of events are planned to help celebrate.  The courthouse was built one century ago, so Saturday at 2 p.m., there will be a historical festival on the Courthouse Square with period music, a children's choir, and a time capsule that will be buried until the courthouse's 200th anniversary.

Sharon Herndon, a downtown merchant," said "The courthouse is our centerpiece, it was voted the prettiest one in Georgia years ago and we still think it is, so we want to mark the historic event."

The Downtown Moultrie Merchants Association will kick off the weekend celebration with a free concert Friday night. The River will perform on the Courthouse Square at 7:30 p.m.
