Jordan Hardware, Leary

The Mission Revival style saw its greatest popularity between 1890-1915. Once relatively popular in South Georgia, few examples survive in good condition. I don’t know if this was always a hardware store; the Ace sign likely dates to the 1970s, indicating it was open until at least that time.

I believe this was razed in late 2016.

  1. These buildings are owned by Marshall Jordan the same man that owns the old houses on the corner at the caution light you photographed. He was had a hardware, a clothing store and a grocery store there. He was still operating a hardware store there until 1992 or 93 then closed it. while I was still the police Chief there.
