Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Overpass, 1938, Byromville

This steel stringer overpass has become a landmark because it retains the original Atlantic Coast Line signage. The line is presently owned by CSX.

Bakerfield Baptist Church, Dooly County

Bakerfield (Baker Field) was once a small community centered around a Flint River plantation. Though I can’t locate any further history at this time, I feel the church must be related to that community and likely has a long association with the area.

Findlay, Georgia

Other than the fact that a post office known as Findlay operated here from 1889-1905, I’ve not been able to track down more information about this lost community. Today, the only visible reminder of its past is this abandoned commercial structure, likely a general store, built by A. C. Bullinton in 1914. A large agribusiness operation, Finley Gin Company, dominates the area today. Of course, there are variations in the spelling of the settlement’s name.

Pinehurst United Methodist Church, 1928, Dooly County

The Methodist Episcopal Church South established a congregation at Pinehurst in 1890, with the Reverend T. I. Nease as first pastor. The first church building was a wood frame structure that featured a belfry (full of pigeons, as the story goes). The present church was built in 1928.

Warehouses like this were once a feature in almost every South Georgia town, from the smallest villages to the cities.
