Tenant Farmhouse, Bulloch County

This simple farmhouse is located near Adabelle, just south of Statesboro. I’m not sure if it was associated with the Croatan Indian community that once thrived in the area.

A nearby historic marker tells the store of the Croatan community:

In 1870 a group of Croatan Indians migrated from their homes in Robeson County North Carolina, following the turpentine industry to southeast Georgia. Eventually many of the Croatans became tenant farmers for the Adabelle Trading Company, growing cotton and tobacco. The Croatan community established the Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Adabelle, as well as a school and a nearby cemetery. After the collapse of the Adabelle Trading Company, the Croatans faced both economic hardship and social injustice. As a result, most members of the community returned to North Carolina by 1920. The tribe to which these families belonged became known as the Lumbee in the early 1950s.

The house is classic 19th-century and the car is classic 1950s. Great combination.

This landmark retains many of its outbuildings and most of the old oaks which give it its name.

It’s not quite Oak Alley, but a standout in Southeast Georgia, nonetheless.

This tobacco barn is evidence of a busy working farm fifty years ago.

This is located near Smiley Crossroads. It’s likely late-19th-century.
