Commercial Ruins, 1907, Carlton

Carlton GA Madison County Ruins Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing North Georgia USA 2015

Carlton was named for Dr. Henry Carlton of Athens. In its heyday, the rail shipping point here was called Berkley (after an engineer of the Seaboard Air Line Railroad) due to freight mix-ups with Carrolton. The post office has always been known as Carlton, though. This row of three commercial storefront from the community’s heyday has been abandoned for many years and will be lost if not stabilized soon.
