Belmont School in Clarke County

This rural one-room schoolhouse was built around 1890 and served grades 1 thru 7. It was closed in 1927 when its students and those of similar schoolhouses in the southeastern portion of the county were consolidated at Gaines Elementary School. At some point the interior was partitioned and the building converted into a residence. The property is currently up for sale; hopefully the new owners will restore the schoolhouse.

The Open Door at Alley's Ol' Store in Lakemont

AryanandJoe Anthony

In the early days of Lakemont Georgia the general store known as ‘Alley’s Grocery’ was the hub of activity for the little community which had grown up around Lake Rabun and the Tallulah Railroad. Located just across the road from the railroad depot it was the place where people congregated while waiting for the train. It served as the post office, as well as the message and communications center for the area and supplied the locals and summer visitors with groceries, hardware, ice and bait

Old Building in Athens

Old building, saw somewhere it may have been used for gun power storage for Cook & Brother Confederate Armory and later for Athens Hardware dynamite storage but not sure.
Paul Bridges

The Womble House in Linton

Only history I've found is that the original build date was in the 1840's, an addition added right after the Civil War and the porch and gables were added in the mid 1880's.

Old Bridge over Big Sandy Creek in Morgan County

When the road was straightened and paved in the 1950's, this old bridge was moved to its present location and the new Worde W. Riden Sr. bridge was built. The wooden floor of the bridge has rotted out leaving only the steel frame.

Forgotten Tractor

This tractor was owned by a pulpwood company in the 1950's. It broke down in the woods and was eventually pulled to this location for the company to pick up and repair. In the meantime, the company went bankrupt and closed. This tractor has been sitting in this spot ever since. I got this info from the son of the man that operated this tractor, so I'm trusting it is accurate.

The Atlanta & West Point Railway Office and Depot in West Point. The freight depot at the far end is the oldest part built in 1887. The office part was added in the early 1900's.The passenger station is long gone. In 1974 it was leased to the Chattahoochee Valley Railway and vacated when they shut down in 1992. After sitting abandoned for several years the city took it over as a visitor center and museum.

Welcome Grove Baptist Church in Smyrna

Founded in 1937. It would appear that it is soon going to pass into Georgia history, as the church has realtor sale signs in front, and I haven’t seen any activity around the building for weeks. Likely going to be a casualty of Smyrna’s rapid growth.
