Our History

Adel is located 24 miles north of Valdosta. It is fast becoming known as the Gateway to the Georgia Grown Trail (GA 37), which runs through the heart of South Georgia and is known for its vineyards, olive groves, u-pick orchards, plantations, and farm-to-table dining experiences. It is also home to Reed Bingham State Park, a 1,600+ acre park surrounding a 375-acre lake, attracting South Georgians for boating, fishing, swimming and water skiing.

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

Just south of Adel in the City of Cecil, motor sports enthusiasts can enjoy speedway, drag, and stock car racing at the South Georgia Motorsports Park. The facility features a quarter-mile, all-concrete drag strip & a half-mile, paved, oval racetrack. More info at goracesgmp.com.
