We invite you to take a walk through the past, while seeing your future in our 1925 City of Dreams.

Prime in Print

As you leave the Drake Hotel and step into the city street, you can almost hear the sounds of the rushing crowds and feel the energy and excitement of America’s great cities in their early days; days before skyscrapers, horseless carriages, and modern conveniences. In those days, Downtown was the place to be. This is where commerce, culture and life intersected, the heart of the city.

Prime Sign

On display in several storefront windows are numerous industry awards that have been presented to Prime Financial Services for their community service and professional achievements over the years. Prime was selected as Rough Notes magazine’s “Agency of the Year”. We have been named to the Grange Insurance President’s Club for over twelve consecutive years and have been an IIAA Best Practices Agency every year since 1994. In 2006, Prime was one of only a few select agencies to become a member in Grange Insurance Company’s “One Hundred Million Dollar Club”. This award recognized that our firm had reached a very important milestone through long term commitment to our clients and Grange Life Insurance Company.

In the center of the downtown intersection is the town clock and just around the corner is the University Library. The Library serves as the conference room and the centerpiece of the room is a Bagatelle table that was manufactured in Liverpool, England in the late 1800s. Originally invented in France, Bagatelle, a table game related to billiards, became very popular in 19th century America. It became so popular, in fact, that lawmakers of the day thought it might lead to vice and so it was outlawed to on Sundays. Displayed in the Library is a political cartoon from 1863 depicting Abraham Lincoln playing bagatelle.

If you’re in need of refreshment before heading to the next destination on our tour, sit for a spell at the Sweet Treat Soda Shop and enjoy a Coke float with a slice of pecan pie. To burn off those calories you can stop by the YMCA. Vintage sports equipment — and mementoes of sports legends of yesteryear — will be found here.


A landmark to look for in the Downtown District is the original sign of the Prime Insurance Agency. The agency was founded in 1985 as a one-person agency offering a single line of insurance products. In 1999, we began the process of expanding our services to include investments and financial planning and Prime Financial Services was founded. From that modest beginning, we have grown to a full-service financial center, serving over 3,000 families and businesses throughout the State of Georgia and beyond. We offer both personal and commercial P&C insurance, life and health coverage, mortgage services, plus a wide array of investment products and services, including 401k rollovers.
