The Old Coast Guard Station on St. Simons Island

Built in 1936 by the WPA. My grandfather was one of the first to be stationed there. He was originally from North Carolina, but met my grandmother there on the island. During the war, he served on a DE (Destroyer Escort). I have a picture of him standing in front of the station in comments.

This abandoned house in Fulton County looks pretty modern, but I don't know anything about it.

Atlanta Federal Penitentiary

Built in 1902 the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary may not forgotten, but it is definitely an amazing piece of old architecture in Fulton County. It's way more amazing to look at in person and see how old it is and how well it has stood up. This is the best shot I could get.

Acworth Christian Church

Acworth Christian Church was established in 1858 as Mt Zion Church of Christ. The current structure was built sometime around the turn of the 20th Century after fires had destroyed 2 previous structures. I do not have information on when the name was changed to Acworth Christian Church.

Central Ave Barber Shop in Valdosta

I got haircuts here from when I was a little boy, until the barber, Clayton Morgan retired and closed the shop . I'm not sure of the year but it was in the mid 1990's. I've lived in N.E. Arkansas for 8 years now. My friend sent this picture to me today. I hope it's allowed.

Rabun County Cabin

To correct my previous error, this is a cabin in Plum Orchard, Rabun County. Its about 4-5 miles from the nearest intersection. As I said before there was once a school here since all the schools had to be within walking distance of the students. The valley ends at Plum Orchard Gap on the Appalachian Trail. I have no date on its construction, but since it is made of logs it probably predates 1870. Among the original settlers were the Addis and Rodgers families.

The St. Simons Lighthouse in Glynn County

The Lighthouse and Keeper’s Dwelling were built in 1872 to replace the original lighthouse built in 1810 by James Gould of Massachusetts, the first lighthouse keeper. The original lighthouse was destroyed by Confederate forces in 1861 to prevent the beacon’s use by Federal troops during the Civil War. The Lighthouse is one of only five surviving light towers in Georgia. The Lighthouse still serves as an active aid to navigation for ships entering St. Simons Sound, casting its beam as far as 23 miles to sea. https://www.goldenisles.com/…/st-simons-lighthouse-mus…/183/

J.C. Strother's Hardware

A fixture on St. Simon's Island since 1930 or so. Besides everything hardware, also everything you need if visiting the beach - fishing gear, cooking pots, and free tide tables. Love these friendly guys.

Hartwell Methodist Episcopal Church

It was incorporated in 1854, the same year the county was established and 2 years before Hartwell was incorporated. Originally a site at the intersection of Howell and Carter Streets was set aside to construct the sanctuary, but in 1859 they sold that property and built a church at the present location. It was a small white frame building with large windows and remained the only sanctuary in the city until after the Civil War. Other denominations used the building also and the Methodist Church remained on a circuit with several other Methodist churches in the county. It was remodeled in 1881. As the city grew so did the congregation and in 1897 the old building was sold at auction and dismantled and the current sanctuary constructed. The Hartwell Railroad built a siding to bring next to the property to bring in brick, granite and other building supplies. The church is VERY active in the community to this day.
