Historic Storefronts, Edison

Hartford Street [The building on the right is the Hammack-Rish Bank, built in 1902].

Though it’s quite small, Edison has retained much of its early-20th-century commercial architecture.

Abandoned Storefront, Newton

This appears to be the oldest structure among those that survived the Flood of ’94. It may already have been abandoned when the Flint River covered the town.

Mims General Store, Hartsfield

Holly Perryman writes: This was a general store owned by Herschel and Lois Mims. He sold everything from ice cream to plow wings. The open door to the right was a barber shop owned by Alton Carlton. Herschel’s brother Farrell Mims ran a store called Mill Pond which is located just off of Hwy 37. There use to be a public road that went by the store but closed years ago by Farrell’s daughter. The store use to be the place to go, had a mill there along with a pond to fish in. Which most people who lived in the Hartsfield area went fishing there. The store, mill pond, mill and a store house are still there. Very unique place, like going back in time. The place is locked up and closed to the public but my husband and Farrell’s daughter are cousins so we have been to the mill pond several times.
