This is a new edit of a photograph made in late 2010. After traveling past the place for several years without knowing the house existed, I was amazed when the property owners cleared the land and exposed it. It’s among the nicest examples of so-called Cracker style I’ve seen. Larry Dixon writes: This is the very house my father was born in. My father was Kenneth Dixon, and was born in 1926 to A. M. (Bug) and Josey Miles Dixon. The property is now owned and maintained by my father’s first cousin.
Jesse Bookhardt commented on the original version on 9 February 2012: I was born in a share cropper’s cracker shack like this one and seeing them still evokes strong emotions. We need never forget our heritage though for many of us we have long left that world behind. Once you have South Georgia sand in your brogan shoe, it never completely leaves.
