Blitch’s General Store, Walthourville

Jonell Blitch notes that in the 1950’s this was a general store that sold dry goods and linens and home delivery groceries. You could run monthly tabs to buy needed supplies. [It was] owned and operated by Jimmy and Betty Blitch. I believe the structure is earlier, though, likely dating to the early 20th century.

    Brian do you know whether the owners of this store are related (I guess probably by marriage) to Iris Blitch who represented coastal GA in Congress in the 50’s and possibly 60’s?
