The Van Duzer family came to Elberton from New York around 1840 and later built a home on what was originally a 20-acre lot. Tax records indicate a structure here as early as 1840; the present structure may be an expansion of that. The Tustin family have also been residents here.

Oliver Street runs right through the heart of downtown Elberton and it’s lined with historic buildings. This was one of my favorite shots from the trip.

History isn’t always pretty old houses and country churches. Independent businesses like this, which were once the norm in our small towns, are getting rarer.

Here are two “window” shots of Doug Anderson’s Barber Shop, which almost looks like a museum. It’s located in the basement of the old First National Bank Building and is a local landmark in itself.
