Rare store, Bulloch County, Ga.


“It’s hard to imagine a time when little stores like this one could be found scattered throughout the countryside,” writes VanishingSouthGeorgia.com photographer Brian Brown of this Bulloch County, Ga., structure. “As people became more mobile, though, the need for them vanished. To find one in this condition is rare.”

Bulloch County, located in eastern Georgia county along Interstate 16, is deeply in poverty with 31 percent of residents living below the federal poverty line.  The county, which has a median household income of $33,902, is home to 72,694 people (2012), two thirds of whom are white.
