Historic Storefronts, Ailey

It’s amazing that most of the buildings in a town as small as Ailey are in good condition. The Peterson Companies have done the restoration and utilize the structures for various purposes.

This is one of two false-front buildings on Railroad Street. Surviving examples of this form are relatively uncommon in Georgia.

When I can identify these structures, I will likely repost them individually.

This building, on the corner of Railroad and Broad Streets, is a fine example of formal commercial architecture common at the turn of the last century.

These utilitarian structures may have been related to the railroad.

Small temporary jails of this style are also known as calabooses.

Soon after Ailey was settled, Methodists began holding services in their homes. When the church was constructed, there were 24 members. Reverend J. S. Lewis was the pastor at the time.  The building is of native pine painted white.  In 1942, the building was raised to add a lower floor for Sunday School rooms.
