Roberson Store, Circa 1925, Milledgeville

This is best remembered as James Roberson’s store, but it was owned by the Ennis family before that. Thanks to Sara Smith Brantley for sharing it with the Milledgeville Memories Facebook group; folks there quickly identified it. Kim Roberson Hornsby writes: This was my uncle’s store…He sold general supplies mostly groceries with those ladders that slid along the shelves. We loved going there as children and playing on those ladders. He had an ice cream box inside and candy treats he would give us when we visited. My grandmother lived across the street in the house with the brick steps. She had six children all born and raised in a two story house that is gone now that was up the little lane beside the house with the steps.

    My grandparents ran their Home Accents store in this building from about 1985 until around 2010. If you have any questions I would love to help!

  2. This looks like Gilmores groceries on the Deepstep rd, going towards Sandersville Ga.

    This was my uncle’s store. It is on the corner of Allen Memorial and Irwinton rd at the caution light. Never had a restaurant in it and was never the IGA. He sold general supplies mostly groceries with those ladders that slid along the shelves. We loved going there as children and playing on those ladders. He had an ice cream box inside and candy treats he would give us when we visited. My grandmother lived across the street in the house with the brick steps.

    I went there often as a child. 1960-1969.
