E. W. Johnson’s Store, Lineville

I had a nice conversation and a tour of this old grocery/general store with the gentleman who farms the adjacent property.

He noted that it was formally known as E. W. Johnson’s Store, but that he never knew Mr. Johnson. He says his wife, Lucy, ran the store and was well-known in the community.

The Varsity, 1963, Athens

Founded in Atlanta by the Gordy family in 1928, the first Athens Varsity opened in 1932, across from the arch. It remained open until at least the late 1970s. This location opened in 1963. Recent rumors suggest the property is to be replaced by a Publix grocery store and the Varsity moved to Oconee County. I cannot confirm this at this time.
