This is one of my favorite old country stores in this part of Georgia, and I’ve been trying to find out something about it for three years. Thanks to Bobby Akins, and Brenda Justice, I now have an identification.

This old country store is located on a what looks to be a busy farm in the crossroads community of New Branch. I imagine it was once a busy place, full of local farmers and their families.

It’s so rare to find an old country store like this today. This one even had gas pumps and Sunbeam bread signs and seemed to be very busy.

St. George, Georgia

Located near the banks of the St. Marys River, St. George is the southernmost town in Georgia, and being 24 miles south of Folkston, it remains quite isolated.

Established in 1904 as a “colony city” by P.H. Fitzgerald (who nine years earlier colonized the city of Fitzgerald) and his son John P. Fitzgerald, St. George was laid out near the forgotten village of Cutler. Some of the streets in the town today bear the same names as streets in Fitzgerald, notably those named for Civil War generals like Grant and Bragg. When St. George was not incorporated nor any improvements made, as Mr. Fitzgerald had promised, some of the colonists filed a lawsuit which led to the founder’s indictment.

The historic background is from Charlton County’s best-known historian, Lois Barefoot Mays.
