I am interested in finding a not-too-small town that has an abundance of historical homes with neighborhoods that are walking friendly, also a great revitalized downtown square.

well, population can be less than 8000 if the town is within 30 minutes of a larger town with shopping and entertainment, medical care.
Anybody know anything about Washington, Ga??

Washington is a lovely town. Others that I think fit your criteria:

Madison
Greensboro
Dahlonega
Thomasville
Darien
Pine Mountain
Clarkesville
Social Circle

It's a pretty little town. It's called The Camellia City because of the profusion of them that grow there. Oh, and the guy that wrote Jingle Bells lived there. I always thought it ironic that a guy that wrote a song about dashing through the snow in a sleigh lived in a place that rarely sees a flake.

Is there a lot of poverty in Quitman (more run down, low rent housing)? Seems like they have some very nice old homes.

I cant give much info on the crime etc but we visited quitman once.( we went for the Brooks County Skillet Festival hosted b Wiregrass Restaurant & Bar of Quitman, GA.) Lots of spanish moss on the trees the court house was beautiful. No sidewalks .( seems typical in the south..lol)
Most the houses had large lots, mixure of large estate looking homes and some ran down 'trailers'
we found a wild adventure when there.
Many of the business in town ( small businesses) seem to have left so alot of empty stores. But thats small time america now days sadly =*(

Much else ....sorry not much help. it looked like at one time it had quiet the community just hit like most small town america. usually if you look at city's website and read their town meeting's minutes it will tell you if they are rebuilding any time soon. public meetings , many are broadcasted on their websites even.

youtube can also give you a feel if people post videos.
