Located just more than two hours southwest of Atlanta, Americus is best known as the hometown of President Jimmy Carter, but it is also the location of several historic landmarks, including the Rylander Theatre (circa 1921), the Windsor Hotel (circa 1892), and the restored Rylander Building (circa 1916), which now houses the offices of Habitat for Humanity. Downtown Americus is a classic example of the fanciful Victorian commercial architecture of the 1880s and 1890s, with just a touch of the 1920s. Strategically located in southwest Georgia, Americus is about equal distance from the mountains of north Georgia, Atlantic beaches, and the Gulf of Mexico.
