Southern Railway Depot, McRae

This may have been built in the 1890s but I can’t find an exact date. It’s been used for storage in recent years, I believe, but appears to be in deteriorating condition. It would be a great restoration project for McRae.

Telfair County Courthouse, 1934, McRae

McRae was designated the Telfair County seat in 1871 (replacing Jacksonville) and a courthouse was constructed in 1873. A more modern structure was completed in 1904 and served until burning in the early 1930s.

The present structure was built in 1934, incorporating some of the brick walls from the 1904 structure. It was designed by the Macon firm of Dennis & Dennis.

Telfair County Jail, 1902, McRae

Few historic jails of this age are still in use but Telfair County’s is an exception. It’s been renovated in recent years and additions have been made. This was a common style for jails in the early 20th century.

South Georgians love their seafood and most small towns have at least one fishmonger. It’s a hard business to maintain away from the coast, though.
