Central Hallway Farmhouse, Wayne County

This is a difficult house to photograph, as it’s always shaded by an old oak tree growing in the middle of the road just in front of the structure. The double-pen style was essentially that of an enclosed dogtrot, but many were eventually expanded to accommodate growing families, as was the case with this one.

    The Tree in front of this house is so nice…It is not in the pic but the photogragher will remember it!

    Very near my farm in Odum.

      interesting. In the 30’s-40’s, my grandparents (Ganey’s) farmed in Odum and Blackshear. They were basically sharecropping. I recall they worked for a Colonel Collins for a time on a large farm. Before my G’dad and father passed away, I recall visiting a house like the one described back in the early 1980’s. that house had been abandoned for years even then, but my Dad remembered living there. It was near a curve on a dirt road and had a central opening/hallway just like this one.
