This medical building, on a former Georgia State Hospital campus, was constructed between 1928 - 1929 and named after the hospital's superintendent at the time. It closed in 1979 and has been abandoned since.

Construction on this building. the only hospital in the county, was completed just before 1930 and remained in operation for nearly 50 years. It contained a clinical lab, x-ray department and morgue.
The Jones building at Central State Hospital in Georgia was constructed between 1928-1929 and was designed as a medical and surgical hospital complete with clinical lab, x-ray department and morgue. During the time, it was the only hospital in this county.
Sadly, the Jones Building closed in 1979 and has sat vacant since.
This was the last location we explored during our trip to the Southern United States last May.

This was the last location we visited on our trip to the South. Finding medical equipment is always a nice treat, because many of the locations have been stripped of all furniture and artifacts.
