Penn Chevrolet Murals, Gordon

Penn Chevrolet was Gordon’s dealership and located adjacent to this building (if I understand correctly), which has murals honoring the business on both sides.

Erick, Georgia

These ruins caught my eye. It appears they’re all that remain of Erick, a lost community situated along the Seaboard Rail line in western Wheeler County. (I’ve tagged the structure as lost, as there is really no way to save it).

Sandra Spires Johnson first identified this as Ben Irwin’s store, but Sandra Sells says it was a different store which also served as the post office. I’m surprised that there was more than one store here.

Andy Griffith Show Mural, Broxton

Barney Fife Andy Griffith Show Mural on Farmhouse Broxton GA by Dylan Ross Art Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2016

Some of you may remember this old farmhouse on the outskirts of Broxton that I photographed a few years ago. It originally featured a mural (seen below) done by owner Linda Christian. She really enjoyed doing it and was happy that it brought lots of joy to passersby on US441. It’s presently being spruced up, with a new face, by Dylan Ross. Dylan is a native of Coffee County whose extraordinary talent has garnered him scores of impressive clients and fans ranging from Aaron Murray and Luke Bryan to Lennox Lewis and Dennis Rodman. His work is really fresh and colorful and he’s a working artist in the sense that he’s always creating art. Please visit and like his Facebook page, or link to his website below.

Coca-Cola Mural, Leary

Though it’s barely discernible, this old Coca-Cola mural, like many others around Georgia, can still be made out if you look closely enough. The building it once brightly adorned was likely a general store.

Cochran Bonded Warehouse

Every town of a good size once boasted a bonded cotton warehouse or two. Most sold fertilizers, seeds, and chemicals to area farmers and came to prominence with the rise of industrial agriculture. This one is especially nice because its old sign is still intact. I believe it’s still in business.
