Calendars need updating, must also be a storehouse of sorts.

Desk and drawers full of papers

Stacks of stuff on the floor. This place was pretty locked up except for this window, this was all I could get to.

This pamphlet describes the Bethel Baptist Church's 121st annual session on October 27, 1953. I found it in one of the stacks.

As i grew up in Bluffton,Ga.,it is in fact Herman Bass's store..Bluffton has a Baptist and Methodist church and both are still active...Now can't wait to see my grandfather's store labeled as a church....
