Central Hallway Cottage, Mauk

The transom and sidelights surrounding the front door suggest that this is a relatively early central hallway form. The dormer on the left may be a later addition.

Mauk School, 1936, Taylor County

This historic Mauk School was built by the Works Progress Administration in 1936 to replace a smaller schoolhouse that had served the the community for a number of years. The architect is unknown, but the school is almost identical to “Floor Plan No. 5 – Five Teacher Community School” from the Rosenwald Fund. The school appears to be well-maintained today.

Mauk United Methodist Church, Taylor County

Typical of Georgia’s rural churches, Mauk United Methodist derives its beauty from the simplicity of its construction. I haven’t been able to locate any history of the church.

Central Hallway House, Taylor County

The hand-sawed porch posts elevate this simple form to an important example of local craftsmanship. I hope to learn more about its history.

Patsiliga Creek, Taylor County

Patsiliga Creek was of early importance to Taylor and Talbot County, supporting at least two mills (Fickling and Fielders) and the communities that depended upon them. This is the view from the bridge at Fickling Mill.
