Sardis, Georgia

Sardis GA Burke County Downtown Masonic Lodge Storefronts Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2013

The two-story building houses the local Masonic lodge and other businesses. JEP writes: The bottom floor of this building, the corner was at one time the Bank of Sardis. Now it is the Sardis office for Shepperd Gas Company. The vault is still in the building and functions as storage. The far end of this building, first floor once served as a grocery store, a women’s clothing shop, and even a tire company. Now it’s home to a salon & flea market. Sadly, during mandated renovation/ city beautification the front steps to this old building were removed and destroyed. Replaced by a ramp. These are the steps many teens hung out on on weekend nights for nearly a century. They are missed.
