Wasden House, Brooks County

This house is to me one of the great rural landmarks of South Georgia, due not only to its imposing stature but its pastoral setting behind mossy oaks.

I know very little about the house except for general background shared by locals who are concerned about its ultimate fate. It was home to the Wasdens and later the Stranges and may have been divided into apartments at one time.

It was obviously surrounded by large porches, removed in recent years.

It’s located just south of Quitman on private property.

Thanks to Marian Phillips and Michael Williams for sharing photographs and inspiring me to find this place.

    I came upon it about 2 weeks ago and just stood there, agog. Magnificent. Even if it is in a ruinous state, it is still amazing!

    Hi, I love your pictures and the work your doing. I have seen this house in pictures and would LOVE to see it in person. I live in North Florida and love my roots of South Georgia. Traveling the back roads is one of my favorite past times. Would you mind sharing the road name? Also I came upon a lovely picture of it with its porches if you’d like for me to share it with you I’d be happy to.

    Please, someone take this home as a restoration project. I hate seeing huge amounts of money being spent on new homes when homes like this are a southern treasure.
