General Store, Lela

I can’t locate anything about Lela other than the fact it had a post office between 1904-1928. This was possibly a general store or commissary for the community, which was likely centered around a large working farm. It’s possible that it was a schoolhouse, but the architecture leads me to believe it was a store. It’s one of the most perfectly restored and maintained structures of this type that I’ve found in Georgia.
