Lovely building along the tracks.

Our “vintage” town was conceived in the mid 1850s with many of the buildings from the 1870s onward still standing (commercial and private). Our town was skipped over by progress so we’re fortunate to have retained some of our Southern charm into the 21st century.

Here’s a neat old building that’s the last one on the south side of Centre Street – closest to the railway station and still active tracks.

If you look closely at the far right side you’ll see a passing freight train.

I’ve photographed this store in it’s many versions over the years… now it’s a jewelry store that been nicely reimagined. I love the faint outlines of previous advertisements on its side.

Note the rather large cedar trees on the property. The Lesesne House. Built just prior to the start of the Civil War.

Further down Centre Street and right next to the c1911 post office is this lovely home. One of the few remaining private homes (not B&B) still left in the downtown center.
