Video: Business Relocates to Historic Powder Springs Building

Kiwi Quilts was off C.H. Parkway for three years before taking over the Country Store of Seven Springs former spot on Marietta Street.

Kiwi Quilts—which offers a wide variety of fabrics, tools, literature, classes and other things on quilting—is the latest business to move into what could be considered the most recognizable building in the city limits of Powder Springs.

After being open on C.H. Parkway for three years, the business replaces the Country Store of Seven Springs, which closed its doors in July after 15 years at the location on Marietta Street in the heart of the city's downtown area.

The rear section of the building, once a stable, dates back to the 1830s and is believed to be the oldest standing structure in the city. The front section can be traced back to the 1860s and has been, among other things, a blacksmith shop, general store and dance studio.

In 2006, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places under two names: the Butner—Mctyre General Store, and the House Family Blacksmith Shop.

Recently, Darcy's Botanicals moved in across the street.
