Rabun County House

This old building is barely located in Rabun County. I was hoping I could get better pictures but it was posted. It looks big enough that it could have been a lodge or maybe a store or both.

Old Building of Some Sort in Sharon

May have been a cotton warehouse that loaded into freight cars. May have also been a dept or freight house for the Georgia Railroad branch to Washington.

Rural Free Delivery

Envelope from the event honoring the home of Rural Free Delivery. Event held in Norwood Ga   in 1996. Kay Langham was the artist who drew the stamp. I believe Kay visits here from time to time.
Jeffery Baker

In 1868 at Norwood six men along a five mile rural route hired Jerry Parsons, a Negro who could not read, to deliver and collect mail at their homes each day except Sundays and holidays for his food and clothing. The postmaster at Norwood each morning arranged the mail in correct order and “Uncle Jerry” began his ten mile walk covering, in all, 3,110 miles. Sen. Thomas Watson, then a boy clerking for Hon. T.E. Massengale, observed this perfect plan for Rural Free Delivery. In February 1893, Sen. Watson, then in Congress, sponsored the bill creating Rural Free Delivery, copying “Uncle Jerry’s” R.F.D. in Norwood.https://www.hmdb.org/marker.asp?marker=16000

Georgia Baptist Conference Center in Norman Park

The facility began life as Norman Institute, a school for first grade through high school, which opened in 1901. In the mid-1920s, a junior college curriculum was added, and in 1928 the name was changed to Norman Junior College and became Norman College in 1951. At the end of the 1970-71 academic year the trustees voted to close the school due to declining enrollment and financial problems that were common to many such schools at the time, the center’s website said. The assets and liabilities of the college were turned over to the Georgia Baptist Convention and the Executive Committee voted to convert the facilities into an assembly. In the summer of 1971, Norman Baptist Assembly opened.Since then, under a variety of names, the facility has hosted meetings by churches and other groups. For a while it was a satellite campus of Brewton-Parker College. Most recently, the Georgia Baptist Mission Board has gifted its Norman Park Conference Center to Shorter University. - The Moultrie Observer
