Zebina, Georgia

I can’t locate any information about Zebina, but like so many other abandoned crossroad “ghost towns” it was probably never much more than a whistle-stop and a place where area farmers gathered to swap tales and “trade”.

The legend on the front of the store is difficult to read; the first word is indiscernible but the next words are “Cash Store”.

The Coca-Cola mural is a ghost, too.

Freight Warehouse, Baconton

Though its proximity to the railroad tracks would suggest a railroad connection, this structure was actually a commercial freight warehouse.

Mr. Hair Barber Lounge, Fitzgerald

This is a landmark of the African-American community in Fitzgerald. I believe it was a neighborhood grocery store before it became Mr. Hair.

Paxson’s Drug Store, Abbeville

Abbeville’s historic downtown is in great danger of being lost if something is not done in the near future. I’ve heard that such an effort is underway. Perhaps some of the monies raised from the admission and vendor fees for the Wild Hog Festival can be used toward this end.

Most people who drive through Abbeville have seen the iconic Coca-Cola sign (below) but unless you get out of your car and walk around, you won’t notice this great tile entryway. Paxson’s Drug Store was one of the busiest places in mid-20th-century Abbeville. Mike Henderson notes that Dr. Estes had his office upstairs.
