This is a wonderful tribute to the Irwinville Farms Project! Erin O’Quinn expertly blends archival photographs with the anthem of the Great Depression, Happy Days are Here Again, to set the context and has a great interview with Irwinville Farms resident Edward McIntyre.

Thanks to Kevin Warren for the identification. This was the home of Lawson & Irma Warren.
Like most of the surviving Irwinville Farms houses, this one has been expanded and modified, but it’s still a great example.
Johnny Morehead and family run a great country store and restaurant in Irwinville. Stop by for lunch if you’re ever in the area. There’s some nice Irwinville memorabilia in the store, too. Also, Johnny is one of the largest pecan brokers in the area, so if that’s something that interests you, inquire within. And tell them we sent you!
You can like them on Facebook at the link below. It’s rarely updated, but has directions and contact information.
