Made me look.

In 2007, there's still a place called "Jim Crow Rd." It runs through a typical southern neighborhood, past a strip mall with a Curves franchise, a few gated McMansions, a small country store, and the white houses seen here.

The road crosses behind an Elementary school, right past the playground. One wonders if the kids there are still being taught what Jim Crow means, in Hall County, which adjoins Forsyth County, known for its infamous "sundown town" that existed well until the '80s.
