Long Description:

County of building: Carroll County
Location of building: Main St. & North Ave., Villa Rica
Originally the post office
Current: Vacant - looks like storage for Jane's

"The block bounded by Main Street, the public square, Temple Street, and North Avenue originally housed the Pope Brothers Mercantile (305 Main St.), the original post office (317 Main St.), doctor and dentist offices, a millinery shop, and a drug store. Ferryman's Drugstore was located in the middle of the block and H. J. Daniel and Pope Brother's stores were located near the square to the east. On the west end of the block seven businesses and the post office were destroyed by fire in 1908. The J. N. Wilson and Company general merchandise store, which began in 1894 at 315 North Main Street, was destroyed by fire. Mr. Wilson rebuilt the store, which currently houses a driving school. Most other buildings were quickly rebuilt. Currently, the block comprises retail establishments, a church, beauty parlor, and a driving school."
