Columbia Theatre, 1949, Harlem

The Columbia was open for just 14 years, closing in 1963. Since 2005, efforts to restore the theatre have had slow starts. The marquee was restored nearly ten years ago and apparently, the interior is in poor condition. Advocates for restoration have been frustrated by the general lack on interest in the process, but I’m hopeful this will be completed in the near future.

Historic Storefronts, Appling

I’ve seen these structures described as barns, and perhaps they’ve been used for that purpose for many years, but their design indicates an earlier commercial use. The obelisk is the Reverend Daniel Marshall memorial, placed in 1903 to commemorate the founder of Kiokee Baptist Church.

The larger structure was likely a general store/mercantile.

Law Office, Appling

As far as I could tell, this was the only private business in Appling.

Streamline Moderne Storefront, Lincolnton

This “modern” landmark is located on Main Street. It’s an increasingly endangered style in Georgia.
