Dead Peoples Things for Sale, Woodbine

This tongue-in-cheek sign for an antique store greets you just as you cross the Satilla River bridge into Woodbine on US 17. It may be odd but it definitely gets your attention. It has become somewhat of a landmark itself. (This is an older photo, but I believe the sign is still there).

The Royal Workers Lodge F & AM PHA No. 144, Widows Son Chapter OES No. 408 is located in an historic African-American community, just across the St. Marys River from Florida. Maps refer to the area as Greenville, but residents of the area say that name is never used and they all call it Browntown.

Oak Grove Baptist Church, 1891, Camden County

Oak Grove Baptist in northern Camden County is a very small church. It appears to still be active, though I can’t confirm this.

Horse Stamp United Methodist Church, 1926, Camden County

According to the South Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church, this congregation dates to circa 1814. [The church site lists it as Horse Stomp, not Horse Stamp, but all modern maps and the church signs themselves use Stamp]. Either is among Georgia’s most interesting place names. First established at a location used as a headquarters during the War of 1812, the name is said to originate from the clearing created by horses ‘stomping’ vegetation. The first house of worship was built of logs and several frame structures followed. The present structure dates to 1926.

Catfish Farm Sign, Burnt Fort

I don’t know anything about the catfish farm, but the redbreast and bluegills have been drawing fishermen to Burnt Fort on the Satilla for generations. My father has great memories of fishing here when he was a boy in the 1950s.
