Sims Pottery Mural, Gillsville


No longer at this location, Sims Pottery has been in business in Gillsville since 1982. They began making handmade white pottery but are no longer involved in production. They now do wholesale distribution of products from around the world. As to the history of the building, Pam Perry writes: This building was once my grandfather’s general store. DC House and Son was purchased from the Meaders brothers in the early 1940’s as a store and warehouse. My uncle Bob House was the co-owner. I have memories of helping him there as a child. After grandfathers death mid-1960’s uncle Reo Frankum purchased and ran for several years. Note, Meaders brothers lived in Maysville, GA.

Gillsville, Georgia


Gillsville is located in Hall and Banks counties but the section I photographed is all in Hall. These historic storefronts are what remain of the commercial core of the town. The two-story building, that for a time houses Hall’s Pottery, may have originally been a general store or Masonic lodge.
