    it does indeed, I have done tons of research in the past and its one of my favorite local "ghost towns"
    are you able to see the pics in the tag posts? I can see them on my phone but no on the computer at work but so much is blocked I wasn't sure.
    Time for a ride out your way again!

    correct! It was once located at the town of Columbus just past where the state park is now, relocated to Ellaville and after it closed in the 40's sometime relocated to its current location. I think in 1971?
    Lots of interesting history there, I regularly hike the forest and visit the Mansion remains.

    no takers? I know another hint isn't needed. Let us know if we need to retag it closer to the middle of the area

    From some research I think I located the area where this is at - just have not been back over that way yet to verify!

    Well damn-- if i could have seen into the future i could have preemptively grabbed it: unbeknownst to me, i was a mile and half from the tag the Thursday before it was placed (i had ridden dirt River Rd up from Dowling Park to hook up w/ 90 for Madison-- the tag is just east of where River Rd ends at 90) :norton

    Were on you on Honda?? That was me on the v strom with the top box that passed you, I was trying to slow down to see if you'd turn off and follow me but I'm willing to bet that was you I watched turn out onto US90 there

    Well someone was on a pretty modern looking red and white honda, looked crf250L'ish coming right out from river road onto US 90, as I was passing by going East on US90, we both waved at each other and I was on my way to set the tag in Ellaville, I was hoping they'd turn off and follow me but they kept trucking on 90 east like there going across the bridge.

    I was on an old overloaded GS (not white) and this was Thurs 2 August before the tag was set. I hit 90 on the River Rd that's WEST of the Suwanee, i saw today there's a River Rd thats east of the river too. I hadnt seen a soul in hours so id remember passing any riders. Went W on 90 in rain a few miles then dropped onto dirt Farm Road that shadows the rail line into Madison. Sweet stuff, and confirmed a track id drawn but never ridden before. This confirmed all of my new 50/50 route from Gainesville to Madison & up into Quitman GA

    Y'all have some sweet land & dirt roads over there, was honored to ride through

    Aha...yes this woulda been the Saturday I tagged the limestone meat house, so I guess not! We do have some nice dirt roads here and up north of Madison FL around Cherry Lake and such is phenomenal as well!
