The city of Rochelle is a small town in Wilcox County in South Georgia. Established along the railroad line in 1887, Rochelle is composed of a series of districts based on function (commercial and industrial) and patterns of settlement (white and African-American residential neighborhoods). The commercial district is located on both sides of First Avenue between Ashley and Gordon streets. The industrial district is located intermittently along the railroad line. The historic white residential district is located south of the railroad line and the smaller historic African-American district is located north of the railroad line. Community landmark buildings are located throughout the historic district. [Rochelle Historic District, National Register of Historic Places, accessed March, 2018]
