Tidal Pond, Valona

 

 

Dock House, Valona

The old dock here is no longer used due to disrepair but the  early-20th-century dock house [also known as the Valona Fish House] is a survivor. [As the sign clearly states, don’t trespass]. Beth Walters-Parker notes that this was Captain Hunter’s place. The Valona Shrimp Company, which operates in this area, is perhaps the oldest shrimping businesses in Georgia.

Old Post Office, Valona

This small vernacular structure once served as Valona’s post office. It’s located on the waterfront. Beth Walters-Parker writes: My great-grandmother, Lewis Burrows Graham was the postmistress at Valona and worked in that post office six days a week up until the week before she died at age 96.
