Now we know how to pronounce "Meter." And it's a handsome town, county seat of Candler County with a downtown more vital that we expected. We'll visit again.
"...as legend has it, the city's name honors a railroad official's wife. Thankful that he'd "met her" in the town, the official memorialized their marriage with the city's naming." - Georgia.gov
We explored a few blocks and found this handsome ruin. Can you imagine this in any neighborhood in Atlanta? We can.
It's on North Kennedy Street. Looks like work's been stopped for a while.
My friend Carl told me you can "tell" if a house is bad or good way before it's finished. I think you can "tell" even for a ruin.
It's not a mansion but it couldn't be more dignified in it's setting.
It's smelled like a campfire but I didn't seen any burn. It's for sale.
We'll revisit Metter if only to see cheer this house on.
Map to the ruin.
There is more to see.
