Built to lure travelers off busy US Highway 82 (likely in the 1940s), Toby Powell’s Motel & Grill is still relatively intact. The eclectic architecture of the office/restaurant at first appears to be a crumbling facade, but it was built that way! For a time after the motel closed, it served as a grocery store and Virginia’s Beauty Lounge.
Below is a contemporary postcard view from the 1950s.
I remember establishments like this all over South GA as well as tourist cabins.
