Tuten Block, Jesup


Commercial buildings like this, often called “blocks”, could be found in almost any South Georgia town in the late-19th and early-20th centuries and are still somewhat common. This is one of the nicest remaining in Jesup. Thanks to Kim Westberry for the identification.

    these buildings were owned by my family for years… This is called the Tuten Block. I’m not sure where that name came from, I’m sure it originated before my family bought the buildings. We sold the corner building and the building next to it, a couple of years ago. My dad still owns the part of the building that houses my brother’s business, Stereo Concepts.
