Gold Leaf Florist Sign, Hahira

lowndes county ga gold leaf florist neon sign photograph copyright brian brown vanishing south georgia usa 2008

Tobacco has been such an important part of Hahira’s history that they even had a newspaper called the Gold Leaf for many years. This florist’s sign just outside town has been a landmark to travelers on Highway 41 for many years. Apparently, the business closed in the 1980s. I’ve seen suggestions that there may have been a motel here at one time, and ghost letters in the sign may or may not support that fact. I’m told the sign has been removed, as of 2015.
