This central hallway farmhouse has been expanded over time. A smokehouse (or packhouse) remains on the property.

Old Post Office, Maysville

Susan Cooley writes, in part: We have inherited the building… My family has always called the building the “post office”. There is a very ornate vault. The store front has been so many things in my life time,  from an old VHS rental store to a flower shop. I married a handy man, Brian McClain ( I still carry my beloved maiden name) who has been busy renovating the properties. He has worked diligently, hanging off a ladder with buckets of mortar and patting it into the old bricks to preserve and weather proof the building, without too much modernizing. We are very committed to historical relevance…

Jenn Cochran’s comments also suggest it may have been a bank, though it’s likely a safe would have been present in a post office.

Maysville Methodist Church, 1890, Banks County

This congregation was organized in 1881 and for almost a decade they met in private homes, and the old Maysville school building. This lot was purchased in 1890 and the church built soon thereafter. Like most other Methodist congregations in Georgia, Maysville was later affiliated with the United Methodist Church; after outgrowing this structure, the congregation relocated to a newer structure.
