A couple of counties over from my GEORGIA GARDENS, we find our self in Taliaferro County for a day of Geocaching.
Taliaferro County is a small town of about 1,717 people. A very small but interesting town with a really neat courthouse which was established in 1901. This is also home to Alexander H. Stephens. He was a US Congressmen, Governor of Georgia and Vice President of the Confederate States from 1861-1865.
A beautiful small church was full of people on the day we walked past here. Hence, the cropped photo, removing the parked cars.
William Bartram is once again mentioned. His trail is all around us here in Georgia.
Old downtown is not bustling as it was in the past. But a lot of movies have been filmed in this small town of Crawfordville, GA. "Sweet Home Alabama" with Reese Witherspoon
"Coward of the County" with Kenny Rogers
"Get Low" with Robert Duvall
To name a few.
The old Train Depot has not seen foot traffic in many years.
The Train still runs on the tracks as we discovered just as we had crossed the tracks by foot! I have not been that close to a train in a long time. The shake of the ground was exciting.
An old Mural still appears on the side of the Depot. Can you tell it is the Last Supper?
A new Mural is on the other side of the street.
This whimsical sign really got our attention to the point that we all got into the car and headed over for lunch. I wish I had snapped some pictures as this was a wonderful place to eat and stroll about. Antique vehicles and just about anything else you can imagine are within the restaurant and grounds. We plan to go back again some day soon. We discovered, there is a Geocache located there! Ha, we did not know it at the time so we will be back. One never knows what they will discover by exploring SMALL TOWN AMERICA, In the Garden...
