Roosters were released in the 1960s several miles from Fitzgerald and they somehow made their way to our downtown area. You either "love 'em" or "hate 'em"! Fitzgerald hosts the 'Wild Chicken Festival" each year.
The Festival is held downtown on Main Street on the third Saturday in March.
Dorminy-Massee House was built in 1915. The house was converted into a bed and breakfast in 1997. Each of the six guest rooms are decorated in themes and have their own personalities, the Blue and Gray room, the Jefferson Davis room, the P.H. Fitzgerald room, the Fitzgerald room, the Lee Grant room, and Eulalie's Room, named in honor of the late Eulalie Massee.
The historic Garbutt-Donovan Building currently operates on the first floor as a French market known as Bella Rue Plaza.
The Grand Theatre is located on South Main Street and was originally constructed in the 1920s. It burned and was rebuilt in 1933. It still retains many of the characteristics of its original style, including the glass brick facade on the second floor and a huge rainbow-colored neon marquee. The theatre accommodates major touring productions and movies every week.
The Carnegie Center first started out as a library, which opened on March 1,1915. The library contained 20 shelves of adult books and 15 shelves of children's books. The building was restored in May of 2007. Most of the architectural details remain. The shelves now display local artwork. The art gallery is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The center is also available to rent for personal functions.
