First African Missionary Baptist Church, Everett City

Emma Gale writes: My ancestors (The Andrews), founded this Church circa 1865-1867. Originally they were up in Rumph Island, about 10 miles, headed toward Mt. Pleasant. The church and a school was started in the home of my Uncle Dock. My Grand-Uncle (Dock Andrews), and other relatives once owned Bull Island (at the end of this Road), that the Church is on, and much of the property down this Road. My Grand uncle (Rev. Alex Anderson), brother to my Maternal Grandmother, once Pastored First African Missionary Baptist(Everett).

Mrs. Lottie’s General Store, Everett City

Donna Lowery Murphy writes: I was born about 20 miles away but we lived in Everett City. Mrs. Lottie’s store was right down the road from my house. Mrs. Lottie was a very large lady and also large as life. She sat in a rocker and ran the cash register. Her husband was tall and skinny. She did a good business because she was the store on the way to the river which was just 3 miles away., so she had lots of fisherman and campers shopping there.

Anthony Gray: I can remember shopping in Lottie’s store as a kid, her sitting in a recliner while operating the cash register.

Altamaha River Swing Bridge, Everett City

Abandoned by Seaboard Coast Line Railroad in the 1980s, the trestle/swing bridge seen here dates to the days of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, and in the heyday of passenger trains, carried the Orange Blossom Special and other legendary passenger cars. It’s the most prominent landmark at the Altamaha River Park.

The bridge is also a popular landmark for boaters traveling down the Altamaha to the coast.
