  Henry County has been growing so much lately that some places are becoming unrecognizable. In an effort to preserve some of the history of our community, The Times is displaying photos of Henry County from the past. If you can name the persons or place shown above, write us at and tell us about it. In the next edition, we’ll reveal the location of the picture and notes readers send us. Photo courtesy of Henry/Clayton Genealogical Society. Visit the Genealogical Society at 71 Macon Street (in the Brown House) in McDonough Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Last Week's Picture

This photo was taken in 1941.

  Thanks to Susan Hargrove, Debbie Bailey, Denise Carter, Sydney Brannan, Vince Farrah, Garry Collins and Rob Gulley for writing in to tell us this is the Railroad Crossing on 20/81 coming into McDonough.

  Halee Eugene Oakes wrote, “The house on the right at the corner of 20/81 and Highland Avenue is still there.”

  David Bledsoe said, “The building on the left is Clomer Davis’s store and junk yard.”

  Bill Maples told us, “Next to the tracks was a fruit stand at and the little run-down shack was also the place the AJC paper carriers picked up their papers to deliver. No lights or bars at tracks. This must have been before the 70’s.”

Have a picture of Henry County as it was? Send it to us at or 35 Griffin Street, McDonough, GA. 30253. All pictures will be handled carefully and returned to owner.
