Kress Building, Waycross, GA.

The storefronts along this block was constructed between 1908 and 1914. The building on the left is the Churchwell Dry Goods Store and this is the Kress Building, which is a two story building in T shape.

The Kress Building now houses the Heritage Residential Reality, Inc. which was established in 1994. In 2002 Doris Germano, owner and broker purchased the historic Kress building in downtown Waycross. The building renovations were completed and the agents moved into a lovely and spacious office in which to conduct the business of selling and listing real estate. The opportunity to purchase a nationally known franchise, CENTURY 21, was made available in 2004 and our company became CENTURY 21, Heritage Residential Realty, Inc.
