Kenneth Dixon writes: This house was built in 1859, likely by Judge Benjamin E. Brinson (1800-1861) or his son, the Hon. Jesse Adam Brinson (1826-1883). It sits on the site of an earlier log house, which was moved and was being used as a barn in 1978. The original appearance of the house was probably a Georgian gabled-ell cottage. Successive generations added a hallway and an extra room, along with other exterior changes. John Ivy Brinson (1896-1992) (grandson of Jesse Adam Brinson) and his wife Mary Groover Brinson (1912-2005) made interior alterations about 1939 and enclosed the breezeway about 1948.
Two of the barns are of a very interesting design, not often seen in South Georgia.
Due to their proximity to the locally famous Coleman barns , I wonder if they were accomplished by the same builder, or at the very least inspired by them.
