Peacock’s Grocery & Garage, Mershon

I ran into a local gentleman while photographing in Mershon and he said that sixty years ago this was a busy place, where turpentine workers who lived nearby ran accounts. He also said his father remembered working on Model-T Fords in the garage at the rear of the store.

Abandoned House, Millwood

This eclectic house seems to symbolize the fortunes of Millwood, like so many other railroad towns that dried up as soon as the business did. At one time, the railroad siding here was a busy hub but today the trains just speed by on their way into Rice Yard in nearby Waycross.

The overall appearance of the house is Neoclassical, but other elements make it an eclectic style popular in the late 19th and early-20th centuries. It’s a truly massive structure and luckily, neighbors seem to keep an eye on it. It would be a wonderful restoration project.

The “stacked” gables on this house are amazing.

This brick shell is all that remains of the commercial center of Millwood.
