A point of interest in downtown Adel is the Jim Paulk SOWEGA building, often called the “Watermelon Building” because of its exterior motif of watermelons. The building was home to the Southwest Georgia Watermelon Growers Association when constructed in 1930, but now houses the Adel-Cook County Chamber of Commerce.  It is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
