E. W. Johnson’s Store, Lineville

I had a nice conversation and a tour of this old grocery/general store with the gentleman who farms the adjacent property.

He noted that it was formally known as E. W. Johnson’s Store, but that he never knew Mr. Johnson. He says his wife, Lucy, ran the store and was well-known in the community.

Theatre, Gibson

Though I’m unable to confirm it at this time, I believe this was originally a theatre. Since 1986, it has been home to the Gibson Lodge No. 257, F. & A. M.

Laura Cobb Rutherford was perhaps the first advocate for the education of women in Athens and through her efforts and the financial backing of her brother, T. R. R. Cobb, the Lucy Cobb Institute (named for Cobb’s daughter who had died at the age of 13 from scarlet fever) was constructed in 1858 and held its first classes in 1859. W. W. Thomas was the architect.
