This is an early vernacular house with Ludowici tile roofing. The central chimney could indicate a saddlebag origin. It’s thought to be the last survivor of the factory housing built for the Ludowici tile factory; residents note that there were once quite a few of these, and the neighborhood was known as the “White Line”.

    Ludowici was known as the worst speed trap in the country back in the 50’s & 60’s.

    IIRC there was a tile plant in the Ludowici area long ago. I believe they moved elsewhere at some point but are operating under the same name.
