     History
    In 1847 the town of Aubrey was named Onega and the Cherokee people were the main inhabitants. Historically it was known for the peanut farms that surrounded the town. By 2009 horse ranches surrounded Aubrey. Around that time new houses were constructed in Aubrey, replacing the grounds of the old peanut farms.

    This peanut dryer was built sometime in the 1910's or 1920's to serve the massive peanut trade in the area. Now that horse ranches and residences have replaced the peanut farms, the dryer sits abandoned and unused save for a "peanut festival" held on the grounds of the dryer every November to celebrate the heritage of the town.
