Akins Feed & Seed, Griffin

Akins Feed & Seed was established by L. A. Akins in nearby Barnesville in 1940. Three of his sons joined the business in 1946, opening additional branches, including Griffin and Forsyth. The Griffin branch has moved to a newer facility and they’re still serving farmers and gardeners throughout Spalding County.

Adams-Briscoe Seed Company, Circa 1946, Jackson

Rufus Adams and Everett Briscoe purchased an established Jackson seed business in 1946 and established the Adams-Briscoe Seed Company, which maintains a thriving business to this day. Notably, they helped innovate the use of Dixie Crimson clover (forage, cover, and erosion control) in the 1950s.

W. E. Johnson Sweet Potato Barn, Carroll County

If you’ve traveled US Highway 27 anywhere near Carrollton, you’ve likely noticed this barn, one of the most-photographed barns in Georgia. It advertises W. E. Johnson’s sweet potato curing and storage business. The Coca-Cola advertising has been tastefully restored.
