Pyramidal Roof Tenant Farmhouses, Telfair County

These are two of  the best-preserved houses of this style I have found. Once common throughout Georgia, they’re increasingly rare today.

    As a person from the state of Maine; my first thought was, snow would easily slide off these roofs.

  2. Greetings Mr. Brown; I have followed you for some time. What would you say my house is? It was built in 1953 by one of the most prolific black builders in the Lowndes-Brooks Metro area, Mr. Jim Wright. I am almost positive you have never heard of him. He served a population that ill afford housing and yet he managed to hobble together many dwellings in the South. Thank you for preserving history. FannieMarie Jackson Gibbs (229) 292-6838. Oh! About Dr. Wasden; My grandmother Pollie Mae James Jackson was a prominent Negro mid-wife during his time in Brooks County. Dr. Wasden had to sign off on the birth certificates. It is documented that my grandmother delivered over 3000 black and white babies. FYI.
