Shea Browning notes: According to local history, this home was built of heart pine lumber in 1907 by J. Judson Kirkland for the “three Corbett brothers.” In 1925, the second floor was converted from the attic by L.A. Hargreaves (attorney), whose family owned the home for about 50 years. The Wade Brown family owns the home now.

This empty storefront on U. S. Highway 82 is one of the most architecturally interesting in Pearson and should be preserved.

Bill Musgrove writes: My Uncle, Os Morgan ran a barber shop right around the corner on Main street for over 50 years. It is still there but, I think it’s been turned into a store-front church. I remember going with my Papa (George Morgan) in the mule and wagon and helping him pick corn (by-hand) right down the road, right next to where the Huddle House is now. The good-old days. I love this website.

Pearson High School, Atkinson County

I believe this building is still utilized by the school system but not as a school. It would be a great candidate for a restoration grant. It was one of a few Georgia schools which had an upstairs auditorium.

This is no longer a hotel, but it’s a nice survivor of Pearson’s early days. It was built by A. H. Huggins and is now under renovation.
