This is one of the most famous country stores in Georgia. The present owner is a daughter of Mr. Veal and she has recently renovated the building. I still hope to rephotograph it soon. Maxine Cunningham writes: My great-grand father, George Washington Danzy, and grandfather, Elisha Danzy, both frequented the store. We used to visit Deepstep multiple times when I was a child and teenager as my mom was born there. In 1928, it also housed the doctor’s “office”. Not to impart with a tragic occurrence, but I’ve been told, my great-grandfather went there on December 6 (1928) to get the doctor to attend to one of his son-in-laws whose medical condition had deteriorated. While there, he suffered a cerebral vascular accident (stroke). The doctor was able to get him back home where he and his son-in-law both passed away.
