Historic Warehouses, 1907, Valdosta

These derelict warehouses are well-known landmarks in downtown Valdosta. Multiple tenants have occupied them over the past century.

The W. L. Wisenbaker Company, wholesale grocer, was one of the earliest tenants. Others have included the Thomas Dekle Hardware Company, Valdosta Paper Company, Pearce & Skinner, and Mutual Candy Company.

The ghost signs are popular with photographers.

Pharmer Chapel A.M.E. Church, Rochelle

There’s no sign at this church and I can’t determine if it’s active or not. It’s a nice form. Thanks to Alice Knipp Garnto, who had previously photographed it, for the identification.
