General Store, Fairfax

I’ve been trying to get to Fairfax ever since seeing Shea Browning’s photograph of this old store, which may have been a commissary for millworkers and lumbermen working the vast pine forests of the area nearly a century ago. Its style, with a false front, is relatively uncommon in Georgia.

Folk Victorian House, Fairfax

The similarity of the architecture in this house and the one just down the tracks in Millwood lead me to think they may have been constructed by the same builder.

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.
