Fairview, Circa 1908, Tennille

Built for the Bashinski family, this was once among the grandest homes in Tennille. The Bashinkis were Jewish merchants who moved to Tennille after the Civil War and operated a thriving department store for many years. When the family moved out in the 1940s, the house was subdivided into apartments and the front columns and porch removed. It is presently for sale and would make a great preservation project.

    I was born and raised in Tennille. I no longer live there, moved away in 1954. I loved seeing all the pictures. Thank you.
