My guess is that this was a grocery store at one time.

Sycamore School, Turner County

This is one of numerous old schools throughout Georgia that stand empty and in real danger of being lost. Their large size often prohibits feasible renovation, as does the outrageously expensive removal of lead paint, asbestos, and other hazardous chemicals.

One-Stop Denham’s, Sycamore

For much of the 20th century, One Stop Denham’s was the busiest store in Turner County. Before anyone ever thought of Wal-Mart, there was One-Stop Denham. Generations of South Georgia schoolchildren from this region made ritual trips to Sycamore to stock up for the year ahead. Nothing like this survives today.
