Ellenton is a very small town, focused completely on agriculture. This old house was a nice architectural diversion, in surprisingly good condition. Thanks to Lynda Tillman for the identification.

Jeanne Futch Davis writes: The Futch house was built in the late 1800’s – early 1900’s. My daddy, A.W. Futch, Jr. was born in this house on February 29, 1928. My husband, Donald Davis and I bought the house in 1979 after my grandfather’s (A.W. Futch, Sr. ) death.

Wes Carter writes: I grew up in Berlin and lived there until 2002. I remember this was General Brownings barber shop. There was a red, white and blue barber pole out front and then Berlin Diner which is what the sign you see in the picture said, although now faded. Jonie Nicholson adds that it also served as Berlin’s first youth center. For those not in the know, Berlin is pronounced BUR-LUHN.

Rebecca Hardy writes: I remember as a young girl going here to Miley’s Garage. My Papa Mark Miley ran his garage it this building. I would go there and get a quarter from him and then go across the street to Mr. Homer Mays store and get a coke and a snack. A coke and a snack for a quarter should let you know that was many years ago. Around 1975.
