Hotel, Gibson

Though it’s now a private residence, this structure once served as a hotel/boarding house.

Grange Schoolhouse, Gibson

I had a nice visit with Mr. Usry, who owns this property. He noted that it was moved to this location many years ago after serving as the schoolhouse for the community of Grange, in Jefferson County. It’s been used as a storage facility for many years.

Augusta, Gibson & Sandersville Railroad Depot, Circa 1886, Mitchell

This beautifully restored Victorian passenger and freight depot is the centerpiece of a nice public park and also houses a museum of local history. A similar depot survives down the line at Matthews. The Augusta, Gibson & Sandersville was the impetus for the settlement of Mitchell and the town grew rapidly as a result of the depot’s construction.

B. C. Wilcher General Merchandise, Mitchell

This is an amazingly well-preserved general store, like most of the commercial structures in the historic area of Michell. I’m really surprised the whole downtown isn’t on the National Register of Historic Places. It should be.
