It’s amazing that most of the buildings in a town as small as Ailey are in good condition. The Peterson Companies have done the restoration and utilize the structures for various purposes.
This is one of two false-front buildings on Railroad Street. Surviving examples of this form are relatively uncommon in Georgia.
I’d appreciate some help with identifying these important resources.
This building, on the corner of Railroad and Broad Streets, is a fine example of formal commercial architecture common at the turn of the last century.
These utilitarian structures may have been related to the railroad.
The whole town should be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
