Smith Farm, Telfair County

Abandoned Farm Windmill Water Tower Old Peach Orchard Telfair County GA Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2014

Diana Stanley Smith writes that she and her husband Danny own this old farm. The windmill was used to pump water, not only for the house, but a peach orchard that was there at one time. Many, many people have tried to buy the old windmill, but it isn’t for sale. We want to preserve this piece of history as long as we can“. The windmill is still operational.

    I discovered this lovely place many years ago when my travels took me by there and have been in love with it since the first time i saw it.

    Brian, even tho the windmill still turns Johnny Smith told me some one stole the pump (unless Danny replaced it) it is such an important part of my life, I think I told you I climbed that tower once to grease the shift for my Uncle Pat Smith he owned the farm circa 1945!
