Pony Express, GA
Pony Express is a crossroads in Newton County not far from Social Circle and Newborn and the old stagecoach and post roads. It is obvious where the name comes from. The four corners of the crossroads today consist of, respectively, a gas station, a repair shop with towing service, a cattle farm and until summer 2007, this sign which used to stand on the lot that has since been developed as a "commercial complex consisting of a car-wash and a 3,000 square feet convenience store with 2,000 square feet of additional retail tenant space".
