Berryhill Store, Cochran

This historic neighborhood store is an example of a neighborhood grocery, typical of small towns in the early 20th century. Thanks to Lisa Walker for the identification.

Sign Barn, Cochran

This is part of a complex of several small buildings that are all attached to one another, painted in different bright colors. I’m not sure if it’s part of a thrift-type store or someone’s personal property.

The Bonded Warehouse (l) and the old Bleckley County Jail (r) are two of my favorite landmarks in Cochran.

Cochran Bonded Warehouse

Every town of a good size once boasted a bonded cotton warehouse or two. Most sold fertilizers, seeds, and chemicals to area farmers and came to prominence with the rise of industrial agriculture. This one is especially nice because its old sign is still intact. I believe it’s still in business.

Old Bleckley County Jail, Cochran

I haven’t been able to locate a history of this structure yet, but it was likely built around 1900-1915. Citadel-style jails like this were popular at that time. I know it was in use as the county building inspector’s office as late as 2008.
