Somehow, these old tenant houses just keep hanging on.
Turn off Highway 122 onto John Deere Street in Pavo and you’ll see an amazing tractor salvage yard (featuring numerous brands).
There are antique and vintage tractors and parts as far as the eye can see, all nicely lined up in rows.
This is the home of T & H Sales & Salvage and if you like tractors you’ll be amazed. Just enjoy them from the road; no trespassing is permitted.
This house is to me one of the great rural landmarks of South Georgia, due not only to its imposing stature but its pastoral setting behind mossy oaks.
I know very little about the house except for general background shared by locals who are concerned about its ultimate fate. It was home to the Wasdens and later the Stranges and may have been divided into apartments at one time.
It was obviously surrounded by large porches, removed in recent years.
It’s located just south of Quitman on private property.
Thanks to Marian Phillips and Michael Williams for sharing photographs and inspiring me to find this place.
