As reported 45 years ago in the pages of The Columbia News, Thursday, April 21, 1960:
A public hearing was by the state highway department to be held Friday, April 29, 1960 in the Columbia County courthouse in Appling, on the proposed widening of the Evans to Augusta Road. This road is Federal Route 76 and State Route 104.
Proposed work begins ap-proximately 3,000 feet northwest of the Evans School and extends southeasterly along the present route to the end of the recently constructed highway known as Washington Road, a distance of 5.4 miles.
The Grovetown Teen Town members enjoyed a "Ship Wreck" dance Saturday night at the community center. There were about 30 present, all dressed like shipwrecked sailors.
