Abandoned Farmhouse, Maysville

Over the years many people have shared photographs of this house, but I’ve yet to locate anything about its history. It has apparently been in this condition for a long time.

The architecture indicates the house was likely Queen Anne or Folk Victorian in style. Since it’s a couple of miles from the center of Maysville, it was probably a working farm. A smokehouse survives on the property, as well.

Ganache Bakery & Bistro, Maysville

As I was walking around Maysville, Debbie Akins invited me into Ganache, the bakery and bistro she created out of an historic commercial space that would otherwise have been lost. She noted that the interior had to be completely rebuilt. It was a nice break and the place smelled wonderful. Her chef was preparing lunch and putting the finishing touches on the day’s fresh pastries. Debbie talked about the challenges of running business in a small town. She’s had several here in the past few years. She’s also restored historic houses and is presently working on the old Methodist church. Every small town should be so lucky as to have someone like Debbie working to revitalize their business districts.

This view shows the Jackson County side of Maysville, one of numerous towns in Georgia which are physically located in at least two counties.

Typical early-20th-century commercial storefronts line the railroad tracks. Charlie McCurdy’s Hardware was most recently home to The Fat Finch, a restaurant.

I’m not sure if this was a grocery or general store, but I imagine it was one of the two. I will update identifications as they become available.
