Other than the fact that a post office known as Findlay operated here from 1889-1905, I’ve not been able to track down more information about this lost community. Today, the only visible reminder of its past is this abandoned commercial structure, likely a general store, built by A. C. Bullinton in 1914. A large agribusiness operation, Finley Gin Company, dominates the area today. Of course, there are variations in the spelling of the settlement’s name.
Findlay is located in Dooly County – just south of Pinehurst, near Hwy 41.
I have a beautiful painting of this building when it was a general store from the late 1969s. How might I share it for others to view? Please help.
Please email to wbrianbrownATgmailDOTcom and I’ll share it on this post.
It was owned by ‘Mrs w e porter’ a general store owned by my mothers family . She lived across the street. I remember visiting in the 60s as a child. My father was an award winning artist . I have a photo of a painting of the store.
Forgot to say… Findlay is in South Georgia.
Where was Findlay located?
