Commercial Block, Elberton

This large commercial block has been home to numerous businesses over the years, including a stone supply company and appliance service. If not too far gone, it would be a great restoration project.

While photographing Elberton, I ran across this wonderful house and briefly spoke to the owner, who graciously allowed me and a friend to photograph it. She informed us that it’s the oldest house in Elberton. I just want to thank everyone in the Granite City for being so friendly and welcoming, and I’d like to give a special thanks to Anna King for helping with identifications of many of the local landmarks I photographed. It’s a great city and I’ll definitely be back to photograph what I missed on the last trip. Please take the time to drive around the next time you’re just passing through. You won’t be disappointed.
