This web page features a few photos of the side wall of the building once occupied by the Mayes Theatre. At some point a Coca-Cola sign on the wall was restored, and the ghost of the theater’s sign was painted over with a sign reading “Welcome to Maysville.”

Sadly, this Flickr photouploaded on July 15, 2008, by Amber Rhea, shows that the midsection of the roof of the theater had collapsed. The most recent Google Maps street view shows that the building has since been demolished.

The Mayes Theatre was located on the west side of the 9100 block of Gillsville Road (GA-52) south of Brevard Street. Most of the remaining buildings on the block show evidence of recent renovation. It’s unfortunate that the theater fell down when it did, or it might have been renovated too. Or perhaps the loss of the theater building was what moved the local folk to get to work preserving what remained of their architectural heritage.
