Schatulga?

This looks very familiar to the tiny community of Schatulga (Shu-taw-ga), that existed up until the late 1990's in Columbus. It was located on Schatulga Road, just north of the railroad crossing on the east side.

I passed here every day for years and would marvel that it looked like it was right out of the 1930s South. One day it just disappeared, except for one house on the left side of the dirt road. It's now completely grown over by trees, but you can still see it on old versions of Google Earth.

I don't care

The setting might be an inspiration for a depressing Tennessee Williams play, but I don't care. The shady lane looks inviting.
