Historic Storefronts, Edison

Hartford Street [The building on the right is the Hammack-Rish Bank, built in 1902].

Though it’s quite small, Edison has retained much of its early-20th-century commercial architecture.

West Broad Avenue, Doerun

West Broad Avenue is the main commercial area of Doerun.

Typical early 20th-century storefronts, including banks, general and grocery stores, and hardware stores, survive in varying states of repair. Locals are optimistic that some of the unoccupied examples will be saved and repurposed.

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.

The north side of the tracks, Milledgeville Road, still retains most of its historic architecture, as well.

Macon Road, Gordon

Macon Road is actually a street on the south side of the railroad tracks in Gordon. Many of the older storefronts have been restored.
