About This Image

The Water Tower - Ideal Georgia 5x7 Greeting Card by Mark Tisdale.

This Ideal Georgia greeting card features the water tower on the corner of Hoke Smith Avenue and Brooks Road. For anyone who has been to "The Only Ideal City in Georgia," this will likely be a familiar sight. And it's true, Georgia only has one city named Ideal, nestled in rural Macon County.

Ideal came into being as a railroad town. Legend has it that it was originally called Joetown. But when two railroad executives visited one said it was an "ideal" place for a depot and the name Ideal stuck. The town of Ideal was incorporated in 1907.

Ideal is a small town but as the water tower depicted here suggests there's a well of local pride in that place. I suspect if you've found this Ideal Georgia greeting card, you've probably called Ideal home at some point or still do? I'd love to hear what the artwork on this card means to you?

What People Are Saying

Wonderful Memories

I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

Nostalgic Masterpiece

The Fox Theatre is Definitely FABULOUS! THIS BLACK AND WHITE VERSION GIVES EXTRA NOSTALGIA I believe, is why I picked this 1, though I love ALL OF Mark's pics of the Fox. The theatre is Beautiful, I went to 2 - 3 concerts there years ago & So glad it didn't get torn down. Mark captured Great details in this pic!!

She Loves It!

My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
