Historical Building 2 (The Lyric Theater & Yarbrough Building), Waycross, GA.

The Lyric Theater was constructed as a Film Theater in 1923. Several world premieres of movies filmed in the Okefenokee Swamp were held here over the years. We can still see the carving above the arched windows. The Yarbrough building connected to the Lyric was originally used by the Theater for upstairs offices. These are still intact today and are rented out to local businesses in the area.
