This seems to be where it all began, in 1949. When blood tests were required for marriage licenses, Kingsland saw an opportunity. Make it easy to get a blood test and a license and reap the revenue. It was a good idea and it led to Kingsland’s distinction as the “Marriage Capital of the South”. Georgia hasn’t required blood tests for licenses since 2003, so the old sign is just a nice reminder of what helped put Kingsland on the map.
