Board-and-Batten Tenant Farmhouse, Tattnall County

This style house was once common in turpentine camps but was also utilized on large farms. This one seems to have been recently exposed and as is often the case the property is likely to be cleared in the near future.

No one who lived in these types of houses had an easy life, but they were often an improvement over the drafty log housing common with the working class a few decades earlier.

From the early 20th century until World War II, the gable front style was among the most popular vernacular forms in rural Georgia. The houses were functional and practical, yet many have been abandoned in recent years.
