A. J. Gillen Department Store, Georgia

Maxeys, 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 PPeril by the Georgia Trust. It’s a lovely building with superb detailing.
