Tenant Farmhouse, Holt

Irwin County GA Red Tarpaper Tenant Farmhouse Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2016

I’ve been photographing this old tenant house on Veal Road for nearly ten years and it hasn’t changed a bit. It’s an amazing commentary on the change in construction techniques over the decades. These houses were built “on the cheap” as they were housing for sharecroppers, but even so, they’ve often held up for 60 or 70 years. I can’t imagine today’s prefabricated houses lasting this long.

    You know it is dilapidated, but I can feel a lot of history of that place ! Is the building about 70 years old ??
