This was one of those old farmhouses that I could never drive by without photographing. It always got my attention, standing alone in a field variously planted in cotton and tobacco. It was always the highlight of any trip on Georgia 203 between Alma and Jesup.
In January 2015, Mary Schafer shared this sad news: “I almost cried when we went through on Highway 203 on our way home to Ocilla for Thanksgiving, and this beautiful old house was gone. I always looked for it as a landmark. All that was left where it had stood was a couple of blocks. Sad to see our history disappear.” Judging by that, I would say the house was torn down in later summer or early autumn. I photographed it earlier last year.
