Dickey Farms, Musella

In business since 1897, Dickey Farms is one of Georgia’s most iconic peach growers and packers. People drive from far and wide to the out-of-the-way packinghouse here in Musella to buy their famous peach ice cream and other peach-based goodies. 9 more words

Ichauway Store, Baker County

Located on a high bank of Ichawaynochaway Creek, this is one of the most iconic country stores in Georgia, in my opinion. It’s still open (with limited hours) and the gas pump still works.

Old Hoggard Mill Bridge, Ichauway Plantation

I can’t locate anything about the history of this bridge, but it  provides one of the most scenic views in all of South Georgia.

The girder style construction is a bit complex for a dirt road and the view as you near the end of the bridge is of the iconic Ichauway Store.

Tenant Farmhouse, Rio Piedra Plantation

This is a relatively well-preserved example of one of Georgia’s most iconic rural architectural styles.

I’m really impressed that the plantation has chosen to save it, at least for now.
