Aaron, Georgia

You won’t find Aaron on most maps, but this structure is evidence of its past. I will update when I learn more, but I do know that the Aaron family were very involved in the cotton business and likely turpentining. This appears to have been a commissary/general store with a residence on the second floor. Turpentine commissaries were once widespread in this area as the business was dominant here for much of the 20th century.

Central of Georgia Railway, Depot, 1885, Gordon

This typical depot of the Central of Georgia was discontinued in 1985 and restored in 2003.  It is now home to a railroad museum.

Papermill Road, Gordon

A nice stone veneer building large enough to have been a hotel is located at the corner of Macon Road and Papermill Road.

Unions are fairly rare in Georgia, but in areas with heavy industry they survive.

Main Street, Gordon

I’ll identify some of these buildings as I learn more. I hope all these structures can be saved and utilized.

Milledgeville Road, Gordon

The north side of the tracks, Milledgeville Road, still retains most of its historic architecture, as well.
