Double Heads Country Store, Screven County

Double Heads is about 11 miles south of Sylvania on U. S. Highway 301, once among the primary New York-to-Florida routes for travelers along the Atlantic seaboard. All that remains of the community is this abandoned store (also a garage at one time) and an active Baptist church across the highway. Double Heads was named for its proximity to the headwaters of two creeks.

    The old Arnette School was down a road beside the store.. I think it’s actually called Arnette School Road. I’m not sure what the School was prior to desegregation, but I attended Kindergarten there in 1980.

    My dad ate at the Paradise Restraunt and stayed in the motel when he was younger. He always told me stories of the old place.
