The Barton Post Office
Isn't it cute? I couldn't resist this picture. This building, on South Railroad Street, originally served the community as a bank. It was built in 1901, the year Elva Shaw McGee was born. The house, to the right of the post office, is Ed Robertson's house. It was built in 1903. The next lot traveling south was owned by Dave an Elva McGee. The building on the lot was recently demolished. Ed currently owns the property.
In the 1897 Photo, the area described appears to be empty lots.
Behind the post office, a portion of Dan's Mountain can be seen. Dan's Mountain forms the eastern boundary of George's Creek Valley, while Savage Mountain forms the western boundary.
