Board-and-Batten House, Dubois

Dodge County GA Highway 23 Board and Batten House Tenant Style Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2015

Likely a remnant of the tenant farming/turpentine era, this house is of a utilitarian style once found one nearly every country road in South Georgia. Quite a few remain, in various states of repair, but I’m seeing fewer and fewer every year.

    I love this photo. I just moved to Georgia and just driving up and down 117 from Eastman to Douglas I see these houses that I so badly want to photograph before someone goes in and tears them down. It is sad. There is even a spot that has old restrooms still standing on the side of the road. just outside of Jacksonville. I hope that you plan to keep the photos coming. Then if you drive through Rhine it is like a old western that has been closed down. Thank you for the photo.
