This is one of  two nearly identical tenant houses which stand empty in Warrenton. I don’t know if there were others.

If you’ve ever traveled between Warrenton and Gibson, you’ve likely noticed this house. It’s nearly impossible to miss. It looks lonely but well-maintained.

Barnett Methodist Church, Circa 1876

This congregation was once a centerpiece of the railroad town of Barnett, which thrived in the latter half of the 19th century. The building was in bad repair for many years but was recently renovated.

Lawrence Battle, a prominent local landowner, gave the land on which the church was built in 1876. He died just a year later.

Among the many fascinating markers in the adjoining cemetery, the marble angel marking the grave of Battle’s daughter, Marye Lulu, is the most revered. She died on 12 June 1900.

Notable, as well, is this wooden grave marker at the burial site of Jason Hayes (September 1834-June 1908).  On a personal note, I found the graves of several members of the Pate family, which may well turn out to be relatives of mine. One of the names, Maxie Pate, is a name shared by my maternal great-grandfather. I haven’t yet made the connection, but I believe there is one.

Unidentified Structure, Barnett

Barnett GA Warren County Old Roadside Store Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing North Georgia USA 2016

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.
