Augusta, Gibson & Sandersville Railroad Depot, Circa 1886, Mitchell

This beautifully restored Victorian passenger and freight depot is the centerpiece of a nice public park and also houses a museum of local history. A similar depot survives down the line at Matthews. The Augusta, Gibson & Sandersville was the impetus for the settlement of Mitchell and the town grew rapidly as a result of the depot’s construction.

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.

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.

Storefront, Mitchell

I’m not sure what purpose this building served, but it was likely a grocery store.
