Calhoun Grocery has survived in south Georgia even though it sits within sight of an Interstate and is in close proximity to Wal Mart and numerous other major competitors.  It just has that old south look to it.  Reminds me of places I went to as a child and none of those places are still in existence.

Linden Fl

This old place sits directly on Hwy 50 west of Clermont.  It is rapidly deteriorating as evidenced by the recently collapsed porch roof.  It's a classic and still shows remanants of it's bright yellow paint job.
Located in Alachua County Florida and sits on the Old Bellamy Road which was the first "highway" traversing the entire width of Florida from Pensacola to St. Augustine.  Remnants of the road still exist in several places and there are a number of these old homesteads to be found.

This is the old Florida Welcome Station that sits on US Hwy 17 about 300 yards south of the St Marys River which is also the state line.  The other end of the building advertises souvenirs and films while this end is all about the whiskey.  I believe many of the south Georgia counties were dry back in the day so this was a well placed business prior to the advent of Interstate Highway 95.  It's a beautiful old remnant from Florida's past.

This is an old style bath house that sits by Lake Lochloosa in north central Florida.  There is a fish camp and store located nearby along with a mobile home park and rental units.

This is a beautiful old place that has been everything from a rooming house to a cigar factory.  It's located in the town of Waldo (now where's Waldo jokes please) which is near Gainesville Florida.
