- Charles Herty Birthplace State
- Located on West Hancock Street near the old Baldwin
County Courthouse in Milledgeville, Ga.
Charles Holmes Herty, one of America's
outstanding chemists, was born on this site December 4, 1867.
He spent his early life in Milledgeville where he attended the
Middle Georgia Agricultural and Military College (now Georgia
College). Later he studied at John [sic] Hopkins and at European
universities. Aided by his efforts, American chemistry became
a giant industrial enterprise, and the Georgia pine became a
valuable raw product in this new industry.
