Post Office, Ohoopee

Located near the railroad tracks in Ohoopee, this appears to be the last remaining commercial structure in the community. It’s also possible that it served as a bank. Cindy Talley Nolfe, via Facebook, notes that it was the U. S. Post Office in the 1950s. [The post office closed in Oak Park in 1953].

This structure is already in ruins but I felt it needed documenting.

Adam Underhill writes: I believe this was the residence of my great-great-grandfather, Cannie Swain Meadows, a Confederate veteran. I believe he is correct in his assertion. According to the listing on Find A Grave, where this circa 19100 postcard was shared by Olivia Williamson Braddy originates, Meadows (8 March 1843-15 August 1923) was a Corporal with Company H, 49th Georgia Infanty. He owned a dry goods store and hotel, as well as Tiger Springs, a recreational attraction on Tiger Creek. Cannie, as he was known, had 13 children, all but one of whom lived to adulthood; several lived well into their nineties.

South Georgia Tobacco Culture, 1955

Georgia Tobacco Season First Day Music Celebration 1950s Post Card Collection of Brian Brown Copyright Vanishing South Georgia USA 2014

This rare postcard from my collection is postmarked 1955 from Lyons. I don’t know that the photograph was local to that area; it may have been a stock image sold in different parts of the South, but it’s one of my favorites.
