Hartwell City School, 1934

Built in the Georgian Revival style popular with public schoolhouses in the 1930s, the Hartwell Elementary School, as it’s now known, is still in use. It originally served grades 1-11. Atlanta architects Sidney S. Daniell and Russell Lee Beutell were responsible for the design. A WPA gymnasium (not pictured) was constructed in 1939.

S. T. Fleming General Merchandise, 1889, Bowersville

Bowersville saw its commercial peak between the 1880s and 1910s and S. T. Fleming’s was likely the busiest store in town. The second floor of the mercantile was the Masonic Lodge. The smaller building to the right was built by Fleming in 1907 for use by another business.

Vanna, Georgia

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.
