General Store & Post Office, Circa 1925, 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 Wallace and Johnny Mallard were earlier owners. It also served as the Walthourville post office.

U. S. Custom House & Post Office, 1902, Brunswick

Now Brunswick’s City Hall, this was built under the direction of James Knox Taylor, Supervising Architect of the Department of the Treasury at the time.  It is unclear who the actual architect was.

“Long Tabby” & Post Office, Sapelo Island

A barely recognizable renovation of “Long Tabby”, one of Thomas Spalding’s plantations, this structure houses the Sapelo Island Post Office today. Virginia O. Horton, who lived on the island in her youth, notes that the post office was once located nearby in a commissary and that Marie Olsen was the postmistress.
