From thievery to graffiti: the School Bus Graveyard

by The 100 Companies

Traveling to the intriguing School Bus Graveyard in Habersham County, visitors take photos with the graffitied buses but few know how they came to be.

Alonzo Wade’s Used Cars and Auto Shop, open since 1959, faced theft of used car parts in the 2000s. Wade reacted by parking his used buses around the property as a makeshift fence.

One day, he woke up to a bus spray-painted with a ghost and a note that said, “Sorry about the bus.” Soon, many artists flocked to the site to make their mark creating the popular picture location that it is today.
