From the high bluffs at the Vada Boat Landing, the views of the Flint River are breathtaking. It’s a great place to take in the real grandeur of one of Georgia’s most beautiful waterways.

Tobacco Barn and Ancient Oaks Branchville Road Mitchell County GA Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2014

I’ve photographed this barn on three occasions in the past five years and it’s still one of my all-time favorites. Its setting in these ancient oaks makes it as popular with locals as it is with photographers.

Butler-McDonald House, Mitchell County

Mitchell County GA American Foursquare House Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2014

Timothy O. Davis writes: When I was in first grade (1961) this was the home of my teacher, Mrs. Eloise McDonald. It was a family home (Butler) and in prior years two brothers had built homes which were very similar in design, several miles apart. This one is located on the Bainbridge Highway, the other is located at the edge of Camilla, off the Old Pelham-Camilla Road. It is off the road, on the farm and not visible from the road.

I don’t often find these old tar paper stores so I was thrilled to stumble upon this one near Vada. Many thanks to Leisa Jones for bringing it to my attention.
