Exploring at the COOP store

In the early 1960s, the Effingham County COOP Store operated to serve farmers in the area. It was a farmers' cooperative for purchasing items for crop production and some sales of farm products. Located across from the Effingham County Judicial Building on north Laurel Street in Springfield, the building is still in existence and is utilized by James Carlson and Joann's Florist for storage. Manager of the store at the time of these photos was Wilton Shearouse. His daughter, Joyce Ann Shearouse Tuten, worked around the store and was very active in 4-H.

Farewell, Mrs. Weta Boaen

On February 13, 2018, I lost a neighbor, friend, former English teacher and ultimately a mentor. Born in Bulloch County, Luweta Lowe spent most of her 86 years in Effingham. She was a teacher and Principal for over 40 years in the schools in Effingham County, Georgia and Hampton County, South Carolina. I had Mrs. Boaen as my English teacher in Springfield Elementary for 7th and 8th grades. When Effingham Middle School opened she moved there and taught me in 9th and again in 10th grade as she moved up also at Effingham County High. Everything that I learned about ...

Reflections of Echoes of Effingham

Left to right: Harry Hinely (on mule), Hugh Hinely, Jud Hinely, Frank Hinely, J. Bruce Hinely (my grandfather on the stump) and their father J. Horace Hinely (my great grandfather). They are using a purchased apparatus used to remove stumps from the ground by digging away some of the soil around the stump with shovels and attaching a cable to a winch with a long shaft which was attached to a larger stump as anchor. A mule team walked in circles eventually working the stump from the ground. This is being done in what is now a field across the ...

Wishing you a Happy New Year

Historic Effingham Society wishes each of you a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year! Please pray for our soldiers that are fighting for our freedom all over the world. Keep their families in your prayers also as they sacrifice so much while their loved ones are away. We pray for America and an end to terrorism and threats from countries in turmoil. Many are still impacted by the hurricanes last year and the wildfires, so please keep these folks in your prayers, too. Thanks to God for all of his blessings in 2017.

Effingham's stories of yesterday

At this busy time of year everyone is scurrying around shopping for the holidays. In sharp contrast to our variety of stores nearby with our good transportation was the local store for a particular neighborhood. In times gone by it was not so easy to get the bare necessities. What was not grown in a garden and canned or meat and poultry that was raised on the farm consisted of a few items purchased in the town's little store or commissary. Sugar, coffee, flour, shoes, clothing or cloth to make clothing along with lamps were among the items obtained ...

Discovering an old J.B. Simmons token

A local building contractor, Dwayne Deal, shared scans of an old coin or token he found in Rincon. It was found not too far from where Simmons operated a Rincon store. What is interesting is that this is for his Springfield store. I have gathered some facts I will share about John. B. Simmons who operated Rincon and Springfield businesses.
