I’ve been told this was once a bank but can’t confirm it at this time. I will update if I learn more.
This was most recently home to Lott’s True Value Hardware. I imagine it was a hardware or department store prior o that.
Ocmulgee Street was once Broxton’s main commercial area. The Western Auto store was located in the second building from left (above).
This is a popular gathering place in Broxton. A young lady from the neighborhood stopped by while I was photographing and noted that “Mr. Possum”, who lives adjacent to the property, keeps things clean around the tree.
I made this photograph in 2008 and Smith’s Grocery hasn’t changed much since then. It’s a local landmark and a great independent business.
