Scotland, Georgia

Main Street in Scotland features buildings from various time periods. I found it quite unusual that city hall (beige building, left) is located next door to a liquor store (red building, center). Scotland is a neat little town, out of the way for most travelers but worth a look. Settled after the Civil War by Scotch Presbyterians, Scotland was first known as McVille, for the ancestry of most of the first residents. The name was changed at the request of the railroad to avoid confusion with nearby McRae. Though he left as a young man and entered service in World War I, my maternal great-grandfather, Burt Herman Browning, was born here in 1892.
