Sherry Kiltz writes that this was originally L.C. Moon’s Grocery and that his family also owned the red building next door  (package store).  Mr.L.C. was also the mayor of Scotland for years.

Corrugated tin buildings of this style were once widely used as stores in small towns throughout Georgia, as I’ve found in my travels, but the ones that survive are often resigned to storage use today. It was later known as Smith’s Grocery and Granny’s Restaurant.
