The building on the left served for many years as Marion Drugs. The Charles M. Clements building is on the right. It served as a hardware and furniture store as well as the local undertaker. Downtown Buena Vista is nice little town with generally well-preserved early 20th century commercial storefronts, dominated by one of Georgia’s older courthouses in the center of the square.

A new church was built in 1858. It was moved to this location from near the cemetery in 1908. Brick was added in 1924.
