Bank of Tifton, 1917

Designed by William Edwards of the Atlanta firm of Edwards & Sayward, the Bank of Tifton is one of the most distinct commercial structures in the historic district. Several banks have occupied the site over the years and it is presently an Ameris Bank. The wing on the right side is a later expansion.

Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Freight Depot, 1910, Tifton

Tifton has more depots per capita than any other town I can think of in South Georgia, with four extant, plus another at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture.

The old Atlantic Coast Line Railroad freight depot has housed the Tifton Terminal Railway Museum since 2008; it has limited hours.

This Southern Railway passenger coach is identified with a Flint River sign. I’m not sure of its history at this time, but is likely a salvage.

Pope House-Lankford Manor, 1892, Tifton

Built for the Pope family in 1892, this was converted to a boarding house and restaurant in 1934 by the Lankford family. Pre-interstate, when US41 was a main north-south route to Florida, it was one of the busiest tourist sites in Tifton and known statewide, even nationally. After the boarding house ceased operation, the popular restaurant remained a Tifton landmark for many years.

This was the home of Columbus Wesley Fulwood, for whom Tifton’s large public park is named. Self-taught in the practice of law, Fulwood opened the first  firm in Tifton and served several terms as mayor. It is presently an apartment house.
