Railroad Avenue, Bartow

Bartow is a nice place to just get out of your car and walk around. There’s much I didn’t photograph on this trip but I’ll return as soon as I can.

The marble-front bank on the right was built in 1900.

The typical storefronts above appear to date to around 1900.

At the far end of Railroad Avenue, across from the depot stands this more modern structure with elements that would lead me to guess it was built in the 1920s. The old post Bartow post office was located in the far right section.

    At the other end of the street is a plate in the ground telling when all the buildings were built after a fire destroyed this side of the road.

  2. I’d love to visit. The history those buildings hold can only be imagined.

    Are most of these buildings empty?
