Youmans, Hoke Smith


Hoke Smith Youmans was vice chairman of the Liberty County Board of Commissioners from 1961 to 1965. It was during this period of time that he traveled to Atlanta, Georgia, and secured the necessary state funds with which the Liberty County Courthouse was given its first renovation since it was built in 1926. It was also during this period of time that he was largely instrumental in persuading the Interstate Paper Corporation to locate its facility at Riceboro.
