Goodes Community Heritage Presentation
The Chattahoochee Hills Historical Society coordinated a presentation on the historic Goodes Crossroads Community in 2009. Laurie Searle created a poster-board presentation with photos contributed by the Alford Family and the Old Campbell County Historical Society.
Goodes Community - Back in the Day
Men Folk and Keith's Store
Mr. George Keith’s store, located at the intersection of Hutcheson Ferry Rd. and Atlanta Newnan Rd., was a community staple back in the day. It supplied residents with food, clothing, household goods, and an open invitation to gather for a game of checkers. Shown here are George Keith, brothers Robert and Pell Robinson, and dog Scottie.
Women Folk at Quilting Bee
The quilting bee was an important part of social life back in the day. Throughout the winter months, women would piece together their quilt tops. When the weather turned warm, they often gathered on front porches to assemble their quilts. Shown here are Mrs. Mattie Robinson, Mrs. Seymour, and Mrs. Cath Jackson.
Children at Play and Family Life
Bicycles allowed children to explore their world back in the day. The old balloon-tire bikes were ideally suited to the old country dirt roads, long before the idea of mountain biking became popular. Shown here are the Robinson siblings Sara Ann, Pell, Molcie, and Harriette.
