(WSB-TV) – A Confederate monument in the town square of downtown Gainesville could be moved.
The statue, known as “Old Joe,” was erected in 1909 by the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
A Hall County spokesperson confirms that the group has been in negotiations with the city and county about relocating the monument, which bears and inscription paying tribute to Confederate soldiers.
“Joe has been a part of this community, and the city of Gainesville would like to see him remain a part of this community,” Gainesville Mayor Sam Couvillon said. “We have no desire to just disregard him and get rid of him.”
He said where the statute might go, and when it might be moved, are still up for discussion.
The county owns the center of the square, and the Daughters of the Confederacy have 10 years left on a lease where the statue stands.
