Beulah was the name of this home, owned by the late Dr. Willie Grier Todd, a professor of history at Georgia Southern University who was known as the “Matriarch of Guyton”. Dr. Todd started the Guyton Holiday Tour of Homes in 1978 to highlight  historic local residences. Upon her death in 2006, the Guyton United Methodist Church purchased the house and since 2012 it’s been known as Beulah’s Coffee House and Consignments.

Guyton Christian Church

This beautiful church was organized no later than 1873 as Antioch Christian Church. It is affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) congregation. Its name was changed in 1900 to Guyton Christian Church. The congregation cemetery, located nearby on Little McCall Road, dates to 1873, but I do not know the date of this structure. It may be contemporary to the cemetery.

Office Block, Guyton

Bob Koch, who recently purchased this “block” related to me that a bank, post office, and the city hall have all been located here over the years. Today, he has a great classic motorcycle shop (Vintage Motors) here, and there’s a bookstore, as well.

I was amazed to see the identification on the support columns. They were made by Fitzgerald Iron Works, in my hometown of Fitzgerald, probably in the first or second decade of the 20th century.

If you’re familiar with this website, you may know that I sometimes just post whimsical things I encounter in my travels. This fiberglass giraffe, beckoning customers into an antique and thrift shop on Georgia Highway 17, may just be one of the most interesting things I’ve found.
