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.

Broad Street Storefronts, Norman Park

Though its downtown is very small, Norman Park has made an effort in recent years to revitalize historic storefronts. The building on the left was built after the demolition of the old Doc Megahee pharmacy around 2012.

The building below is empty and appears to be in real danger of being lost. This (side) view was made from Horne Street.

Most of these storefronts are in ruins and will soon be gone. The building on the far right was Brady’s Food Basket, the local grocery store.

8th Street was Pitts’ main drag during its heyday. Many of the historic commercial storefronts have been restored or stabilized in varying degrees by Delano Braziel.
