Aaron, Georgia

You won’t find Aaron on most maps, but this structure is evidence of its past. I will update when I learn more, but I do know that the Aaron family were very involved in the cotton business and likely turpentining. This appears to have been a commissary/general store with a residence on the second floor. Turpentine commissaries were once widespread in this area as the business was dominant here for much of the 20th century.

    This store was open into the late 70’s. I lived nearby in Jenkins County and remember stopping in to get drinks and snacks.
