Dixie King Cotton – Shed House No 3

I only got to look around for  a little while at the buildings from Dixie King Cotton company that still stand along the main street in Bostwick, Georgia.  Cotton was truly king throughout much of the South and was the main contributor to the establishment and growth of this town.

Small portions of the cotton business continue to operate in Bostwick but the original company started to diminish around the period of World War I and never recovered.  I need to get back here when I have more time and really explore.  It is a great little piece of Georgia history.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
