Gordon Motor Court,1940s, Sylvester

This was one of numerous motor courts along busy U.S. Highway 82 built between the 1930s and early 1960s. This was likely built around the end of World War II. The wrought iron posts are obviously later additions, as they aren’t visible in the vintage postcard, below.

Stubbs-Register House, Ashburn

Thanks to Chris NeSmith for the identification. Neal Wynn notes that it was built by the same Macon architectural firm that designed the John Evans House. It likely dates to circa 1897-1900.

I’ve been told this was once a bank but can’t confirm it at this time. I will update if I learn more.
