Road Trip 13: In the Middle of Midville Georgia

Highway 17 isn't main street in Midville, so we turned south on Jones Street to North Railroad, Trout, and Kilpatrick. But we were in a hurry to reach Sparta before dark.


This was a good start but I can't find it on the map.

City hall or the once city hall.

Nice cornice.

Also on Trout. This shape warms my heart. See the steeple of Midville United Methodist Church on the left?

Wish we'd had more time.

Road Trip 12: We Missed Most of Millen Georgia but Hope to Return

Driving north on 17 our introduction to Millen was this mansion in the middle of a low-rise housing project.


This can't be the only one, can it? But we were in a rush hoping to make Sparta before dark.

We took a jog west on Cotton Avenue. Commercial on the north side.

Millen's Pal Theater looks fine for now.

Cotton Avenue fronts the tracks. Millen must be a great train watching place: "Awesome N(orfolk) S(southern) Action in Millen, GA 2/15/14" is indeed awesome.

We found this kitty-cornered from the courthouse at College and Harvey. Look at those tall windows.

But we were out of time. We stopped at McDonalds at the intersection of 17 and 23 then headed west toward Midville.
