|Oil Painting by MRS. BETTY CATO of Conyers painted from 2 black & white original photos taken of a very familiar site known to many Porterdale residents as WOOD'S GROCERY. Although not located inside the city limits of Porterdale, it was actually just across the creek on Hwy 81 but frequented by mainly residents of Porterdale. Owned and operated by Mr. & Mrs. WILLIAM ALFRED WOOD. The lumber used in construction of this establishment was obtained from the OLD FORT McPherson in Atlanta GA. and constructed by JAMES FLECHER BAILEY SR.|
