This is one of just a few working Lummus gins in Georgia. It’s such an integral part of life in this community that it’s the namesake of the annual Cotton Gin Festival, held the first Saturday in November. Bostwick is a fascinating place that I’d recommend anyone visiting when they’re in the area
One of the best descriptions and general histories of Bostwick can be found at my friend Dagmar Nelson’s Southern Exposures blog: http://milkaway.blogspot.com/2009/07/bostwick-ga.html

UPDATE: Part of the Bostwick Gin was badly damaged by fire on 18 May 2022. I’m not sure how extensive it was, but apparently this section was spared.
