Some of you may remember this old farmhouse on the outskirts of Broxton that I photographed a few years ago. It originally featured a mural (seen below) done by owner Linda Christian. She really enjoyed doing it and was happy that it brought lots of joy to passersby on US441. It’s presently being spruced up, with a new face, by Dylan Ross. Dylan is a native of Coffee County whose extraordinary talent has garnered him scores of impressive clients and fans ranging from Aaron Murray and Luke Bryan to Lennox Lewis and Dennis Rodman. His work is really fresh and colorful and he’s a working artist in the sense that he’s always creating art. If you agree, please visit and like his Facebook page, or link to his website below.

I’m fairly sure the barn pictured above is a corn crib. The other is likely a crib, too.

This interesting house is located in the historic Hillview community.

It’s possible that this was double-pen dogtrot that was improved over the years. The rear addition was likely the kitchen, though it’s really hard to know considering the lack of a particular style.

Cedar Creek School, Tattnall County

This is one of the best preserved country schoolhouses I’ve ever found. I tried to find it in the Educational Survey of Tattnall County, but that document is not properly formatted online. I’m calling it Cedar Creek School because that’s the neighborhood in which it’s located and I know that there was a rural school known by that name in Tattnall County. My guess is that it dates to the 1910s-1920s.
