Blakely Plantation Trace

Blakely is the quintessential small town! Home to nearly 6,000 inhabitants, life here moves at a slower pace. Visit the ancient Kolomoki Indian Mounds, the Coheelee Creek covered bridge and an authentic wooden Confederate flagpole in Courthouse Square. Erected in 1861, it’s the last one of its kind.

Nicknamed "The Peanut Capital of the World," Blakely is a quintessential small Southern town. Visit and enjoy our beautiful square with unique shops and dining. If you're looking for adventure, we have plenty of outdoor recreation from hiking around Indian mounds to fishing and exploring creeks. History is alive and well in our town. Visit the Early County Museum for a step back into the past. A stroll around the square will also take you by the last remaining wooden Confederate flag pole and by our Grand Ole Lady, which is also known as the Early County Courthouse. Built around 1905, the Early County Courthouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Also of interest in the city are the peanut monument, Kolomoki Mounds Historic Park and the Coheelee Creek Covered Bridge.
