Champion’s has been a Shady Dale landmark for many years. They even have their own independent sawmill on site.

Willard, Georgia

Slightly west of Eatonton is the crossroads settlement known as Willard. The only thing I found here was this abandoned country store.

Rocky Mount can’t be found on every map, but the community lives on in several historic churches and this old store.

To my knowledge, this is the only surviving commercial structure in Neal.

Unidentified Structure, Barnett

This neat little store is located across the highway from Barnett Methodist Church. Nelanie McAfee wrote that it was Joe Chapman’s store but Mr. Chapman’s nephew, Jack Chapman, writes: Although similar in size and Joe Chapman’s store was across the road from the church, this is not a picture of it. It’s an unusually small structure and I hope I am able to identify it at some point.

Russellville General Merchandise

Driving west from Forsyth toward Musella, you’ll pass through Russellville. Besides the historic Russellville Baptist Church, located nearby, this old general store and the unidentified structure in the previous post are all that remain to indicate that this was ever much more than a crossroads.
