County Line Christian Church, Digby

The lost town of Digby can hardly be found on a map today, but a road sign marks its presence. The area is just south of Brooks and the church is just yards from the Spalding County Line.

Victorian Farmhouse, Blackjack

This old farmhouse, with Carpenter Gothic elements, stands in an increasingly urban area. I hope it can be saved.

Atlanta & West Point Railroad Depot, Madras

Madras was originally known as Powellville and later, Powell’s Station. By 1904, the name was changed to Madras. I believe the depot was built around the time of the name change but have been unable to locate any history.

Thanks to Carol Chancey of the Moreland Cultural Arts Association for pointing me in the  direction of Madras.

General Store, Madras

This store and the shed beside it, are very close to the US 29 right of way.

General Store, Greshamville

This iconic general store was most likely built in the 19th century, probably soon after the Civil War; it could be antebellum but I haven’t learned enough about the area to make that connection. It features handmade bricks and an architecture rarely seen today. Though its roof is in ruins, the frame of the structure still seems salvageable.
