Gratis Store & Post Office, 1919, Walton County

I’m a bit confused about this structure, which records date to 1919. Post office records indicate the office in this community only operated from 1893-1902. Records are often incorrect, though, and I hope to learn more.

Tenant Farmhouses, Good Hope

Just outside Good Hope is a row of three or four tenant houses standing in the woods beside a country road, likely part of a large farming operation at one time. One has been sided with plywood and painted in bright colors.

They all seem beyond saving at this point

Stone Veneer Storefront, Good Hope

I believe this stone-sided building was once a store. The sign lets you know you’re in the right place.

Stone Veneer Building, Good Hope

This is located at the center of the Good Hope community, across the road from the Good Hope General Store. I will update when I can identify it.

With a twin in Sparta, the Walton County Courthouse is one of my favorites. Designed by the firm of Bruce & Morgan, it originally featured a more ornate clock tower, which was lost during a storm and replaced in 1910.
