This is a great example of an intact early-20th-century farmstead. Its scope is more evident when viewed from a distance but it looks great from any angle.
The tobacco barns probably date to the middle of the last century and though not evident in this photograph, the one in the foreground is leaning badly. The “Cracker” style double-pen farmhouse is the real highlight of the property, though. The owners have done a great job in keeping it authentic and stabilized.
The plain double-pen style house is usually seen as an icon of Cracker culture and appears in various incarnations throughout the South. Multiple definitions of Cracker are debated, some negative and some positive, but the broader implication is that a cracker is simply a rural Southern farmer, usually of limited means but very self-reliant and always a devout defender of his land.
