Most people bypass Vanna as they’re traveling on Georgia Highway 17, but the remains of the old town are centered around the railroad tracks just east of the highway. It appears to have been a busy place in the early 20th century.

This is one of several old structures around Vanna whose use I can’t quite determine. With the door and windows, this could have also been a commissary.

This is located on the highway, so it could have been a store, but since it’s attached to a relatively large farm property I think it was a commissary.

Vanna’s post office was located here, but it may have been phased out during the recent rash of rural post office closings.
