Denise Millett writes that the larger store in the image was Blease’s Store; it was owned by her grandparents, James H. &  Mary Wright Blease. She fondly remembers “fishing sodas out of the ice box cooler” when she was a small child. I’ve added these to “Lost Structures of South Georgia” as they seem to be beyond repair.

Rountree’s Grocery is a rare survivor in Barney, typical of the vernacular commercial architecture once common throughout rural Georgia.
