Frank is a small farm community outside Ocilla. As far as I can tell it never even had a post office, but in the early 20th century it had a school, as well as a church which remains today. A voting precinct has also been located here for many years. I wish I knew more of the history. The house I’m featuring in these images has the most extreme pyramidal roof of any in the area and although it’s been updated with vinyl siding and modern shingles, it’s still an iconic example of vernacular architecture. It was the home of James and Josephine Royal for many years. (Thanks to Tonya Brown Grimsley for the identification)

Frank is a beautiful church and always well-maintained. Founded in 1913, the congregation met in the old Frank Schoolhouse until construction of this building was completed in 1918.
