The state Department of Transportation has approved the Historic Effingham Ebenezer Scenic Byway.

The byway, approved March 17, has been the dream of a few local historic preservationists for a number of years. Betty Lee Waller of Springfield Garden Club, Pearl Boynes of Guyton Historic Society and Betty Renfro, who all are members of the Historic Effingham Society, have worked for years to answer questions, provide photos and reroute the byway for various accommodations.
