South Liberty Street is still the main commercial area of Nicholls, but many of the old landmarks have disappeared or been abandoned in the past decade.
This vernacular house, which I suspect may have been older than its appearance here would suggest, was torn down some time in 2012. Susan McDaniel notes that it was the home of a Mrs. Kirkland who taught school in Alma, and was well-maintained while she lived here.
As of 2017, this house has been lost to fire.
Stone’s Oil Company was based in Fitzgerald. This is the only pump with their branding I’ve seen anywhere other than Fitzgerald.
This commercial block has had several uses over the years. Rickey Justices writes: First it was post office, then bank, then a clothes store (The Squire Shoppe), then Ware Forest. It always had apartments upstairs.
I believe this was razed in 2017.
