This group of structures on the edge of Colquitt was likely an agricultural service company of some sort and the store probably featured gas pumps at one time. I hope to learn more about them.
The store is of the most typical style found in South Georgia, dating to the 1930s or 1940s, I believe.
There are several warehouses/barns on the property.
This was the 3,000th post on Vanishing South Georgia, and it represented an important milestone for me. After beginning the project in 2006 and the website in 2008, I traveled to every county in the southern half of Georgia. (As of 2016 I’m still shooting everything I can find). Vanishing South Georgia has forced me to slow down and appreciate my surroundings, and daily interactions with those who share the same passion for preserving our heritage reinforces my resolve to continue the work.
Cotton Hall Theater, a restored cotton warehouse, is home to Swamp Gravy, the ever-changing Official Folk Life Play of Georgia. The innovative use of this old cotton warehouse is really inspiring.
