Queen Anne Farmhouse, Evans County

This house appears to have been abandoned for a long time, but remains in good condition.

Edison City Jail, 1904

The nicely restored jail and fire engine are the centerpiece of a small park on Hartford Street.

Chevrolet Pickup, Telfair County

I took a different road and after heading down what turned out to be a dead end, I passed by this. I grew up around trucks like this and I like running across them, even when they look like this. This one looks to be from the early 1960s.

Roadside Art, Workmore

This old MG convertible and mannequin have been a roadside curiosity for as long as I can remember. They’re located in front of the old Workmore School. You might not call it art, but in lieu of a better description, that’s what I call it.

Twin City, Georgia

This was the commercial center of what was once known as Summit. It merged in 1920 with the adjacent town of Graymont to become Twin City.

Colonial Revival House, Eastman

The loss of this house would be a real shame, but it’s not abandoned, and the owners may list it for sale in the future. It served for many years as a law office and is still in relatively good condition. At least a window has been boarded to keep out the elements and varmints of the two- and four-legged varieties. It’s design is an amalgam of several styles and since, as I often note, I’m not an architectural historian, I’m at a loss to properly classify it.

The vintage Plymouth Fury III parked beside it is a wonder in itself.

Tractor Salvage Yard, Pavo

Turn off Highway 122 onto John Deere Street in Pavo and you’ll see an amazing tractor salvage yard (featuring numerous brands).

There are antique and vintage tractors and parts as far as the eye can see, all nicely lined up in rows.

It’s practically an open-air museum of the tractors that your grandfather and great-grandfather may have used on their farm.

This is the home of T & H Sales & Salvage and if you like tractors you’ll be amazed. Just enjoy them from the road; no trespassing is permitted.
