Old Damascus, Georgia
Variant names are "Damascus" and "Old Town". The community was named after Damascus, in Syria. This was originally the only Damascus in the area. When construction of the railroad bypassed Old Damascus, most of the town moved to nearby "new" Damascus, and the original community's name was prefixed with "old".
