This is one of my favorite houses in Camilla. It seemed for a time that it was being restored, but on recent trips it seems to just be abandoned.

The street was empty at the time I made these photographs, as work was being done on the sidewalks.

This depot, which included passenger and freight areas, served Camilla for seventy years before being abandoned in 1984. It’s now home to the Camilla Chamber of Commerce.

Mitchell County Courthouse, 1936, Camilla

Designed for the WPA by William J. J. Chase, the architecture of this courthouse, like the one Chase designed for Cook County, is Stripped Classical. The eagles surrounding the clock add an Art Deco element.
