"When you go to '' take a look at the community page. It'll tell you a little bit about Quitman and Brooks County. Check out the listing of restaurants. All the things to do. There's a great blog application where you can go in and read some stories about our county," said Lauren Basford, president of Destination Brooks.

    This was an effort by Destination Brooks, a non-profit volunteer organization, which fully funded the project using private donations. Heritage and agri-tourists already flock to Brooks Co. and generate $3.2mm yearly in tourism-related revenue.
