    I do remember Chula. The tobacco barns could be seen every quarter of a mile from Valdosta up to Turner county. (in the 50’s)

      I believe this was my Granddaddy’s barn, James Austin Akins, if it was on Hwy 41, behind the old Chula School. If it is, it has a lean-to shelter around the entire barn. I worked there as a child, my Daddy, Willie James Akins, farmed the land and was the last of the family to own the property. I spent every minute I could on that farm as a young boy.. A wonderful place to grow up.
