Jake’s Place, Darien

Jake’s Places has been an important cultural center in Darien’s historically black Mentionville neighborhood for decades. It was a once a stop on the Chitlin’ Circuit and legends like B.B. King, Little Richard and James Brown all played here. I believe it is presently closed due to a recent history of violent incidents.

    Brian,I have been enjoying your photographs. I just wanted to let you know that if you are still in the area, Midway C. Church is having their yearly service this Sunday at Midway, Ga. (off old highway 17). You are invited to come a be a part of the service in the old church with dinner on the grounds following the service.
