We're headed home now, up Highway 17 hoping to reach Sparta by dark.
And here comes Guyton, Georgia - pronounced "GUY-ton" as in "Guys and Gals" and 2,000 pounds.
This got our attention: Armstrong Morgan House ca 1883 104 Central Boulevard Guyton, Georgia.
This would explain something:
"...People could work in Savannah and then ride the train home to Guyton or other towns along the railway and spend their weekends or summers where they were away from "the fever" or other unpleasantries of the city." - source
There's a terrific walking tour of Guyton, here's the terrific brochure. Here's why you should go:
Claudette's Bed and Breakfast built 1868.
The Anna Duvant House built in 1868 looks like Claudette's sister.
The former post office built in the 1890's.
I don't know what this one is but it's a doll.
A little tired but beautiful.
It was starting to rain and we needed to get going.
Cool corner entrance.
The giraffe will probably be gone by the time we get back.
Next stop: Oliver.
