A. J. Gillen Department Store-Maxeys, Georgia

Oglethorpe County

Built in 1908, the AJ Gillen Department Store was known as Macy’s of the South. It’s been awhile since I’ve been to Maxeys, but there was a movement towards restoration. In 2018, it was listed as a Place in Peril by the Georgia Trust. It’s a lovely building with superb detailing.
