Thanks to Nancy Holland for suggesting this location, one of the most beautiful backroads in South Georgia. I was awestruck by this collection of working agricultural structures. The structure below was a “starter cabin” built by Jim McMillan. Thanks to Mark Dixon for the identification.

It seems to be a barn now, but considering the front door it could have once been a tenant dwelling.

    Brian, do you have an idea who built these log structures? I am hoping to find some tangible thing or place to connect to my early Berrien County ancestor, Clayton Jones. Some of his property later became property of the late J. Henry Gaskins of Berrien County. Francine Jones Coppage Valdosta, Georgia
