Telmore, Georgia

This abandoned “county line”* package store and a nearby church are all that remain of this crossroads community located between Dixie-Union and Millwood. Telmore never had a post office, so the name may have just been a local designation. Thanks to James Kennedy for the identification.

*-So-called “county line” liquor stores weren’t always on the county line, but were very near it; this was a business model that took advantage of its location in a “wet” county, reaping the benefits of the citizenship of a bordering “dry” county.
