Vernacular Farmhouse, Ben Hill County

This house seemed sure to be lost, as it sat abandoned for many years, but luckily it had a happy ending. It was restored. It’s a central hallway farmhouse with a long addition at the rear. This photograph dates to 2001 and is among my earliest.

Batton’s Store, Ben Hill County


This landmark stood for much of the 20th century at the fork of Sibbie Road and Georgia Highway 215, near the Wilcox County line. I made this photograph in 2003. The store has since been relocated to the Batton homeplace nearby.

T. A. Cheatham House, Adrian

This was the home of one of Adrian’s most prominent early businessmen, T. A. Cheatham. The vintage postcard (below) was published by the City Drug Store circa 1910.

Eclectic House, Adrian

Though the layout is Georgian Cottage, this house has Victorian elements, as well. Whatever the form, it’s one of my favorite houses in Adrian.

The oversized brick posts are this home’s most distinctive feature.

T. A. Cheatham Building, Adrian

Seen here in detail (above) and in full (below right), the Cheatham Building is one of the nicest remaining commercial structures in Adrian. I hope it is preserved.
