My parents came to Macon in 1928 and operated the Sam Lee Laundry in the heart of downtown next to the Lanier Hotel on Mulberry Street until the early 1950s.
Only decades later when doing research for Southern Fried Rice, did I discover that several generations of Chinese had previously owned laundries in Macon since 1885, well before my parents came.
In fact, the very same building at 519 Mulberry where we did business as the Sam Lee Laundry was where earlier Chinese ran the Sam Lee Laundry. However, sometime after 2000, this century old building was demolished and replaced with a parking structure.
