Somewhere near the Florida/Georga State Line sits an abandoned motel, vertically untouched. Some locals know about this spot it is often photographed by local photography clubs, the real story that lies behind this site is a site of intrigue mystery and denial.The man who built the hotel's name was Colfort, he was of German descent and quite an engineer. The man who started off in the 30s who do getting off the grid self efficient was something he wanted do in this business ventures. He used the artesian system to power his motel during Route 17 heyday which goes from New York to Florida it was the main Route before 95 was built. He died a man with a lonely heart, he believed for years that his wife and ran off to another man or just plainly disappeared and he had, he died five years after her death. While I was a resident of St. Mary's Georgia which is only 3 miles from this location 30 years backwards the state of Georgia was working on their inner structure such as railroad bridges foundations. Two divers from the state of Georgia and Florida found that 57 Ford up against the railroad bridge abutments underwater in this car was the ladies body his wife and of course he's been dead for years. This story is duplicated in a paperback novel somewhere I have tried numerous sources to find it I've read it several years ago but was unable to locate at this time. If anyone knows where this may be obtained a copy a manuscript etc. Please get in touch with me. A very mysterious situation, the story goes that his sister live somewhere or daughter in California and she is paid the taxes on the property every sense the hotel is basically intact the termites have taken their toll, but it's fairly in much the same shape as it was when he died.
