Raymond Clark writes: HORNE STORE. Georgia Hwy 96 (Fall Line Freeway) near Peach/Crawford County line. There were two Horne Stores.The one pictured here was the former liquor store and where the white truck and pecan trees are on the right of photo is the former store/former owner’s home which was demolished by fire. From the 1960s to 1980s the store did a lot of business with good ole Mr Horne’s bbq, potato salad and home cooking. People from businessmen to students at Ft Valley State University to folks done from picking peaches for the day from Lanes and Pearson Farms bought beer and liquor here.
