Houses of this type were among the most abundant in Georgia in the early part of the 20th century.
I haven’t been able to locate a history of Nebo Cemetery, located on a steep hillside near Meansville, but it features several notable vernacular headstones and many unmarked graves. The earliest known burials date to the 1930s.

This was the old location of the Meansville Baptist Church. It’s on the edge of town and was apparently last used as a private residence.
Railroad service was discontinued in Meansville in 1977. Today, this restored depot serves as Meansville City Hall.

Built as a bank, this abandoned structure was more recently home to Cochran’s Grocery.
