The Eatonton Cotton Warehouse was constructed in 1902, when the major economic influence in Putnam County was growing and selling cotton. Originally named J.R. Griffen Cotton Warehouse, the building warehoused cotton sold by local farmers awaiting transport via railroad. It was not unusual for bales of cotton to overflow from the warehouse and be stored all around the building and even in the streets. After the cotton industry in the county was destroyed by the Boll Weevil, the building became the H.B. Hearn warehouse, where farm supplies were stored and sold. The building was purchased in 2006 by the current owner. After renovations, the space can accommodate up to 615 guests. The large main area seats up to 350 people and still leaves enough space to dance the night away in the entertainment area.
