Central Hallway Farmhouse, Tattnall County

I’ve photographed this house many times; it’s an iconic vernacular style, popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries throughout the rural south. This one retains its original kitchen (later enclosed) but as you can see from the side view, the whole structure is in dire condition.

    Hi Brian, Great photos of this iconic old house. I have driven by it many times going fishing or hunting on Big Hammock WMA at Lanes Bridge . It looked like some people were living there about 3-4 yrs. ago. Would be really great if someone would take the time/money to restore this rapidly deteriorating wooden house of which this is a prime example of our previous ancestors lifestyle. Keep up the great work. thanks——– wendell

    Hi Brian,
    Looking at the end view the main part of the house seems to have enough height to have had a second floor but there appears to be no sign of ever having upper windows. The main house looks a little like a one room deep plantation plain type. Its really nice that it still seems to be in its original form. I really enjoy following your posts.
    Paul
