Birdsville Plantation has been owned by the Jones family since the mid-1700s. The home of Francis Jones remains and is one of just a few colonial residential structures still standing in the interior of Georgia. Modifications giving the house its present appearance were made circa 1847. Somehow, it was miraculously spared by Sherman on his March to the Sea.
This is the old Birdsville commissary, which served the plantation for many years. I would guess that it served as a schoolhouse or chapel at one time.
The entire plantation and all structures located thereon are on private property. I’m grateful to have been given permission to photograph and greatly enjoyed my brief visit there.
