Calhoun Store, Crosland

Lewis Gean Nipper writes: This was my Great grandfather’s store (John Daniel Calhoun). He was the mayor of Crosland and a merchant. There was a railroad track behind the store. It has been gone for a long time. I have a picture of him standing in the doorway. He died in 1921. He and many of my older family members are buried in the cemetery across the road.

Bond-Morris House, Circa 1908, Fitzgerald

This house and the Bond-Carroll House about twelve miles from town are said to have been built by brothers. I imagine it had other occupants after the Bonds but it’s best known today as the longtime residence of Don & Norma Morris. It is slightly more formal than the country house.

Papermill Road, Gordon

A nice stone veneer building large enough to have been a hotel is located at the corner of Macon Road and Papermill Road.

Unions are fairly rare in Georgia, but in areas with heavy industry they survive.

Main Street, Gordon

I’ll identify some of these buildings as I learn more. I hope all these structures can be saved and utilized.

Colonial Revival House, Hawkinsville

For as long as I can remember, this house across the street from the old hospital has been abandoned. It would be a wonderful restoration project.
