Lilly was settled by the Lilly brothers, John, Frank and Robert in 1902. They built the first store and the first residence. The town was first named Midway because it was midway between Cordele and Montezuma. After the railroad came and freight was shipped the people found out that there was another Midway, Georgia so the name was changed to Lilly, Georgia to recognize the first settlers. The railroad was the Atlantic Birmingham. The first store owned by Mr. Robert Lilly was a general merchandise store and had hardware in the aisles in the middle of the store and had a post office in the rear of the store. The mail was thrown of the train in sacks and caught by the depot agent, Mr. Pope, and carried across the tract to the post office and picked up by the people from the store.
