Old Town Well, Oakfield

Most small towns once had a public well and pump for the use of citizens. A few of these still survive throughout Georgia and are usually sheltered by a gazebo or pavilion. Such a structure would likely have not been present when these wells were first built.

    The well pump seems to be sitting on the old railroad bed that the Albany & Northern Railroad used to run until it was abandoned in 1977. Not sure if there is actually a well there. The old railroad bed still has its rails in place for about a hundred yards or so in the woods just north of this little shelter. Like to know if there was ever a depot there in Oakfield. Would like to know if anyone has photos of the town in its earlier days.
