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.

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.

Scruggsville Post Office, Circa 1887, Mitchell

Before the establishment of Mitchell, the nearest community was Scruggsville. In 1887, its post office was moved to be near the newly laid tracks of the Augusta, Gibson & Sandersville Railroad and its name changed to honor its president, Robert Mitchell. The town was incorporated in 1896.

R. M. Coleman Chevrolet, Mitchell

R. M. Coleman operated a Chevrolet dealership in Mitchell in the 1920s and perhaps into the 1930s. This structure is likely older than that association.
