Dixon Farm Tenant House, Appling County

Tenant Farmhouse Photographed 2010 Appling County GA Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2015

I photographed this house in 2010. Larry Dixon writes: This house was built in the early 50s by my father Kenneth Dixon and Solomon Griffis. The property was owned by my grandfather A.M. Dixon who lived just N.W of SR-203 on Dixon Road. It was built to house the farmhands that worked for my grandfather. There was Slim, Gladys his wife, Mary Ellen their daughter, and Rosa, Gladys’ mother. They were a black family well respected in the community and loved by my family. I have tried several times to locate the family to no avail.
