Historic Storefront, Woodland

This was likely a grocery store. The style was among the most common in early-20th-century Georgia.

Post Office, Woodland

When I photographed in Woodland there were Barn Swallows (Hirundo rustica) nesting in front of the post office and flying all around 1st Street.

This was likely a grocery or general store when built.

Talbot State Bank, Woodland

By its appearance, I would guess that this building is a restoration or reconstruction, but if so it’s a fairly accurate portrayal of the corner-style banks and stores common in the early 20th century. The bank was established in 1906.

Old Post Office, Boneville

This is the only publicly visible commercial structure remaining in Boneville and appears to date to the early 20th century. Jeremy Ansley notes that it was the post office. The framework of the historic Boneville/Camelia Mill (1880) survives, but is not accessible. The circa 1840 Clyde Hunt House-Dixie Inn, which was located just down the road, was lost to fire in 2013.

Boneville was a popular recreation spot from the late 19th century until the 1920s, when the Georgia Railroad closed the depot.
