Freight Warehouse, Baconton

Though its proximity to the railroad tracks would suggest a railroad connection, this structure was actually a commercial freight warehouse.

Theater, Hartsfield

This short dirt road is known as Library Road, so I wondered if this was the library, but Holly Perryman writes: This was not a library. It was a movie theater to start with. When Herschel Mims ran a store that is between the post office and the voting precinct building, he used the old theater to store fertilizer in. The white block building on the corner of Bryan Road used to be the library but is now the voting precinct.

Bryant’s Gin & Warehouses, Bartow

Still going strong after a century, Bryant’s Gin was running full steam when I stopped in Bartow recently. Cotton remains one of Georgia’s most important crops.

The present gin in Bartow dates to the 1950s, replacing an earlier facility.


A number of related buildings also remain on the property, which is bisected by the Central of Georgia railroad tracks.

Several old warehouses remain.

I believe this was an office, related to the business.
