Swamp Homestead, Ware County

Just around the bend from Suwannee Lake stands this simple house, typical of the utilitarian homesteads of the Okefenokee. It’s likely one of the very last standing. Restored older examples can be found at Okefenokee Swamp Park and Obediah’s Okefenok.

    Thank you Brian for all you have placed for us to enjoy. This old house looks so much like my grandmother’s home. She lived about a l/3 mile past Suwannee Chapel (pittman chapel) towards Hamp Mizell’s place. As a child we visited often as well as Hamp Mizell’s Suwannee Lake, many memories here. Wanda

    Okefenokee Swamp brought back many memories for me. I have been near it several times on trips to and from GA but never through it. There was a movie made about it starring Walter Brenan if I remember correctly
    Where did the name come from, Seminoles? .As you know I grew up in FL. The name is similar to the name of that big lake in the middle of FL.
