Downtown Barwick is a Unique Rural Town in South Georgia

Half of the town is in Brooks County & half of the town is in Thomas County, split right down the center! In this picture, the building on the left is a U.S. post office that is still being used, the middle building is vacant & looks like it used to be a mercantile business; the building on the right is a bank that is still in use. Roug...hly half the old downtown buildings in this small rural town still have functioning businesses. Barwick's downtown buildings, along with the small town of Pavo a few miles north, appeared in the video for Alan Jackson's 1999 song "Little Man", a song about small businesses that struggled to compete against big businesses & corporations.
