In my book I write about a fictional abandoned mill town named Odette, Georgia. The inspiration for this town was Juliette, Georgia. Once upon a time Juliette was a thriving railroad town. It became like a ghost town but was revived in 1991 when the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" was filmed there. Now Juliette is bustling tourist attraction and people come to eat at the Whistlestop Café and shop at the renovated buildings along MacCracken Road.
I have been there a couple of times and having watched the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" and read the book numerous times it was quite enjoyable to walk along the dusty road that Idgie and the others walked on.
The picture on this page show a couple of the renovated buildings. The blue building is where the fictional store I mention in the book is located.
