Exploring Gray

Our current job has us in Gray, Georgia.  It is a tiny place just northeast of Macon.  One afternoon last week I went exploring on my bicycle.  This is what I found.

Apparently in 1825, LaFayette stopped here and made an address.

One of the things that makes a town a 'town' is the establishment of a church.  This one was built in 1810.  At that time, Gray was at the leading edge of the frontier.

The city cemetery seemed to go forever into the woods.  Unfortunately, I was in flip-flops and I don't relish the thought of poison oak and fire ant bites so further exploring would have to wait for another day.

You are in some beautiful country. I had to read your About Me page to see why you are all over the place more than anywhere else, lol. My husband is a construction site superintendent, he just moves around town. For perennials...the first year they sleep, the second they creep, the third they leap!

Oh, what a neat looking cemetery.

Fire ants stink! I'm glad we don't have them here, but they say we will eventually.

It looks as if your exploring expedition was very successful. I didn't know that LaFayette got to the interior of Georgia during his 1825 tour.
