This may have served another purpose at one time, but it appears to be in use as a warehouse or storage structure today.

I missed the show by one day, but it’s wonderful to see a small town like Bowman doing such a good job of promoting the arts.

Cotton Gin, Bostwick

This is one of just a few working Lummus gins in Georgia. It’s such an integral part of life in this community that it’s the namesake of the annual Cotton Gin Festival, held the first Saturday in November. Bostwick is a fascinating place that I’d recommend anyone visiting when they’re in the area.
