Hawkinsville, the county seat of Pulaski County in middle Georgia, is a town of 5,611 people. It is about 45 miles south of Macon.
The Southern Railway depot at Hawkinsville, built around 1900, still stands. When these photos were made it was used as a scale house for a local agribusiness. The H&FS (Hawkinsville & Florida Southern Railway) was organized around 1889 as a logging line in the pine forests south of Hawkinsville. By 1895 it was also hauling general freight, along with passengers on freight trains.
