Plantation Plain Farmhouse, Wayne County

A historic preservationist has suggested to me that he believes this to be one of the oldest surviving houses in lower Southeast Georgia, perhaps dating to the 1830s. Definitely antebellum and likely built within the first three decades of settlement in Wayne County, it features a recessed chimney and original log attached kitchen.

  1. What an attractive home this must have been when it was first built. When one looks at it, it makes you think that someone put a lot of thought into its design. Would that someone had started preservation on this lovely lady a few decades ago!! I love this one!

    I have never seen anything like this Brian. I wonder do the projecting ”fins” also occur on the other end of the house?
