Guyton Women’s Club & Masonic Lodge, 1915

This is a very unusual combination, in my experience. It’s a practical use, but just not one I’ve encountered elsewhere.

Cubbedge House, Guyton

I’ve been told that this was the Cubbedge House, but haven’t been able to find out anything else. It’s an ornate home and quite difficult to photograph.

Guyton United Methodist Church, 1840s

Guyton Methodist Church Antebellum Landmark Conical Shake Steeple Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2014

To my knowledge, this is the only antebellum structure standing in Guyton. There was a Confederate hospital in the community and General William T. Sherman’s forces occupied the area in their approach to Savannah so I was intrigued to learn that this wonderful old church was somehow spared. I’d appreciate further information on its history. It’s known today as Guyton United Methodist Church.

Boston Butt Sale, Guyton

Guyton GA Effingham County Roadside Sign Boston Butt Sale Old Rusty Ford Truck Americana Rural South Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2014

Relatively inexpensive, Boston Butt is actually from the upper front shoulder of the pig. It’s used to make barbeque, Brunswick stew, and everything in between. A gentleman at this location* was smoking them and a steady procession of customers were just driving through and picking them up. I regret that I didn’t get a chance to speak to him as the traffic was heavy and I had to wait and wait just to get a shot incorporating the sign and the great old Ford pickup. But if you’re in the area and see this sign, you might want to stop by and pay him a visit. As busy as the place was, it must be good.

* just outside town heading toward Springfield on Georgia Highway 119
