South Georgians love seafood, largely due to their proximity to two coasts. Most Southeast Georgians live within an hour of the Atlantic Ocean while a majority in Southwest Georgia are nearly as close to the Gulf of Mexico.
Most towns of any size traditionally have a fishmonger; this location has been home to Camilla Seafood, and most recently, Terry’s Fish Market.
The faded signs on this building indicate that it sold furniture but D. A. Bolton writes that it was built as an early automobile dealership. He notes that the service area was on the second floor and cars were lifted by a large lift that’s still intact today. After the auto dealership closed, it was a John Deere dealership for a time. The furniture business here was short lived and apparently the last tenant.
