Gallemore's Mill (Twiggs County), ca. 1901. This train which ran from Macon to Dublin to Savannah stopped near town of Gallemore, which is between Macon and Danville. These passengers got off and had this photograph made. Note that some of the men are holding guns and there are dogs present. Perhaps they were on their way to a hunting trip.

The Railroad was a very important part of the history of Twiggs County.
The home was built about 1844 by Thomas Glover near the historic Richland Baptist Church. Tradition is that he spoke of his home as the "Baptist Hotel". The architecture is peculiar to the style of colonial homes of the era. The front and back of the house are almost identical in appearance. In the old days, the old Northern Stage road ran in the front of the house. If you are researching the Glover line, drop Margie GLOVER Daniels an email.
