Located on a high bank of Ichawaynochaway Creek, this is one of the most iconic country stores in Georgia, in my opinion. It’s still open (with limited hours) and the gas pump still works.

    The gas pump that still works. Love it!!!!

    Once while spending a summer with my aunt in Lily (Dooley County) she needed gas. She stopped at Mr. Ezra Forehand’s store and went inside. She came out with a lady and said she needed five gallons and don’t bother because Victor can take care of it.

    After getting instructions, I pumped by hand five gallons of gas into a glass receptacle at the top of the pump to the line that said 5. I then took the nozzle inserted into to gas opening and pressed the lever. Gravity pumped the gas into the car.

    I have seen these types of gas “pumps” only in nostalgic restaurants and bars.

    What memories you bring me.

    Thanks
