Most small towns once had a public well and pump for the use of citizens. A few of these still survive throughout Georgia and are usually sheltered by a gazebo or pavilion.

Exchange Bank, Circa 1915, Oakfield
In 2010, Vonnice Brown wrote: I have always loved this building and about a year ago, I purchased it from the Harris family. The bank was built in the early 1900’s and was open only 3 years as a bank. In trying to determine a date of construction, I compared Vonnice’s information with the transcript of an old lawsuit brought by the bank in 1916 against a Mr. Odum. If the bank only operated three years, that would put the date of construction around 1915. Amazing that it only served as a bank for three years. It’s a beautiful old building.

Store & Post Office, Oakfield
Clyde Watson writes: I was raised in Oakfield and know that this building was not only a store but the lady that owned and operated the store was also post master at that time. The Door on the left of the building was where the mail boxes were at and you went through that door to get your mail. The other door was the entrance of the store. I have some very fond memories of this place in the late forties and early fifties.
