Clayton, Georgia

Ice Box Cemetery

An abandoned bait shop with a front lot filled with storage boxes. 

Sorry, Ice Box Cemetery is permanently closed.

It isn’t advertised anywhere, and seems impossible to find a Web presence, but there’s an old abandoned bait shop that sits on the back road of the small town of Clayton, in Georgia.

The bait shop is abandoned and can be visited by tourists looking to poke around a dilapidated shop, but the really quirky bit about this place is that the front lot is filled with a half dozen old ice storage boxes. An interesting and unexpected sight for anybody unaware of its presence.

Update May 1, 2016: the Ice Box Cemetery is no longer in existence. It appears someone took the ice boxes and left an old dilapidated RV.
