The Fred Roberts – Finest Hotel of the
1920s Reimagined for the 21st Century
Downtown Dublin is experiencing a
renaissance not seen since the cotton boom of
the early 1900s. Most dramatically, the $2.5
million renovation of the Fred Roberts Building
has demonstrated that historic preservation
attracts high quality residential, commercial and
retail tenants. The success of the Fred Roberts
has led to the redevelopment of the surrounding
areas into a pedestrian-friendly, energetic, and
beautiful downtown center.
You’ll definitely want to check out the
Fred Roberts Building’s 1926, early Art Deco
architecture. The Fred Roberts was once known
as the finest hotel between Macon and Savannah.
“We love having visitors come over to
photograph the unique architecture of the
building,” says Joshua Kight, a business attorney
whose office is on the second floor of the
building. “The front of the building has these
beautiful Tudor-style brick arches, while the
upper floors have Art Deco-style geometric
patterns designed into the bricks. The real
surprises, though, are the two Egyptian mummy
tombs on the east and west towers. They
commemorated the finding of King Tut’s tomb in
Egypt, which happened just before the building
While Kight Law Office focuses on business law
and real estate, he and his staff have a passion
for historic restoration and are pleased to welcome
guests. “The terrazzo-clad lobby, the heart pine
floors, and the beautiful setting next to Bicentennial
Plaza make this a wonderful place to live and work.”
Stop by for the architecture and stay for a
salon experience at J. Keyton Salon, Dublin’s
only Aveda distributor, or sip a glass of wine or
a cappuccino at the lobby café. The building is
open for visits Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

“The Carnegie Library has been a part of
Dublin and Laurens County since October of
1904,” said Bank of Dudley president and CEO
Sam Beall. “Bank of Dudley was established
in October of the following year, so we know
how important history and tradition are to
our community. Since becoming a part of the
downtown area in 1987, Bank of Dudley
has been committed to making Downtown
Dublin a focal point in which to showcase
all our community has to offer. Our presence
Downtown solidifies our pledge to promote
only the best in quality of life, commerce and
entertainment. Renovations, such as that of
the Carnegie Library, will make tourism, as
well as day-to-day business, flourish in Dublin

Capture a glimpse into the child that became a
legend of the Civil Rights movement. Established
in 1867, First African Baptist Church is the oldest
African American Church in Dublin. Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr. made his first public speech at
First African Baptist Church on April 17, 1944
at the age of 14. Titled “The Negro and the
Constitution,” the speech detailed the struggle
for true equality, ending with the quote, “My
heart throbs anew in the hope that inspired by
the example of Lincoln, imbued with the spirit
of Christ, they will cast down the last barrier
to perfect freedom. And I, with my brother of
blackest hue possessing at last my rightful
heritage and holding my head erect, may
stand beside the Saxon – a Negro – and yet
A plaque commemorating Dr. King’s speech
is available for viewing on the exterior of the
church, and vistors can tour the interior of the
church’s history center by appointment or attend
Sunday services weekly at 8 a.m. and 10:45 a.m.

Retire Ahead of the Curve
Once you visit Dublin, you may want to
live here. As the only municipality in Georgia
certified by the American Association of
Retirement Communities as a Certified Retirement
Community, Dublin/Laurens County is one of
the most desirable communities in the Southeast,
with just the right mix of small town values and
big city amenities. People here are as passionate
about high school football as they are about fine
dining. And with a location where within two
hours you can be at the beach, enjoying historic
Savannah, or in midtown Atlanta, the location
couldn’t be more convenient.
Seniors downsizing out of large family homes
are attracted to Downtown Dublin’s distinctive
smaller spaces and loft apartments that don’t
require yard maintenance. Most of Downtown
Dublin’s residential units are upscale one- to twobedroom lofts geared to empty-nesters. The Fred
Roberts is a prime example of elegant downtown
living in its eight residential condominiums in the
heart of Downtown Dublin.
Active retirees energize Dublin’s downtown
restaurants and theatre programming while also
enjoying Dublin’s parks, sidewalks and fountains
in a safe environment. Many retirees and their
families choose the multi-generational planned
community of Moore Station Village. People of all
ages live in this residential community enhanced
not only by its architecture but also by some of the
most gorgeous scenery Georgia has to offer. A big
plus – homeowners enjoy maintenance-free lawn
care and a neighborhood security system.
