W. E. Johnson’s Sweet Potato & Curing Storage-Roopville, Georgia

Carroll County

South of Carrollton and near Roopville is this landmark. If you’re like me, you may not know what curing sweet potatoes means. Sweet potatoes become sweeter because the starch converts to sugars. This process takes approximately two to three weeks. The time can be shortened to less than a week if the potatoes can be stored at 85F.
