As far as abandoned places in Georgia go, our state has quite a few. But we’re going to show you a different, more quirky side of our state! Most people tend not to think about what happens to a school bus when it retires from taking children to and from school. However, there is one particular place in Georgia that can answer your question, plus show you just how a school bus graveyard comes to be. This weirdly wonderful place known as Alonzo Wade Auto Parts & Services, is also dubbed the School Bus Graveyard, and one look will have you in awe.

You’ll find Georgia’s very own bus graveyard in Alto, Georgia. However, make sure that you contact Alonzo Wade Auto Parts before entering the property. Also, a HUGE thanks to Keith Nelms of the Foothills Photography Group for the wonderful photos!
