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.

Knight’s Tourist Home, Jesup

I’m not sure when this was built, perhaps the late 1930s or early 1940s, but I believe it was built solely for use as a boarding house/tourist home. It is presently being deconstructed. Jesup once had many such “tourist homes” but by the 1960s most were replaced by modern motels. The Broadhurst Studio postcard (pictured below) likely dates to circa 1945-1950. The card notes the availability of a locked garages and boasts that it is a block away from the noise of highway traffic.
