Fair Haven United Methodist Church, 1846, Jenkins County

Francis Jones brought his family from North Carolina to this section of Georgia before the Revolutionary War and the family has maintained land and been involved in the social and religious development ever since. His four great-grandsons, Henry, William, Joseph, and James, were responsible for the construction of Fair Haven, which stands today as one of the great architectural treasures of rural Georgia.

This is located just outside Millen on Highway 23. It looks like the house was likely a tenant dwelling expanded at some point. An addition on the left is visible.

Parker-Landrum House, 1894, Millen

Millen GA Italianate House Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2015

This is the Parker-Landrum home built in 1893-94 by Hardy Ward Parker (m. Sarah Cornelia Edenfield) as he desired his family closer to the schools so his oldest daughter could be educated but not ride in by horse or buggy from the home where they resided (still standing near the Jenkins/Screven Co line, but no longer in the family). Though the house may currently have a somewhat Italianate presence, it was indeed not designed that way originally. It was built by John Miles Edenfield and originally was a Victorian home in mirror vision to the home at the corner of College Avenue and Masonic Street in Millen which he also designed. The house has had multiple changes and additions through the years. Rebie Parker Larsen Landrum was one of the daughters of Hardy W. and S. Cornelia Parker. She and her husband, Crawford Burgess Landrum cared for the Parkers and inherited the home. Their son, John William (Bill) Landrum, II and his wife Jackie Burton Landrum cared for the C.B. Landrums and inherited the home. It is now currently owned by Bill and Jackie’s daughters.
