Undocumented Building, Peacocks Crossing

I believe this building was recently exposed by a property cleanup, as I’ve been through this area numerous times and have never seen it before. The massing of the structure is a bit unusual, leading me to conclude it was likely not a house.

Commissary, Washington County

This structure is located across the highway from the house in the previous post. I would have included it with that post, but I’m not sure if it’s part of the same farm. I’ve preliminarily identified it as a commissary, since it has windows, but I can’t confirm. It’s a great little building, whatever its past purpose.

Folk Victorian Farmhouse, Washington County

This beautiful home commands a nice view of the surrounding farmland from its promontory along a busy highway north of Sandersville. Records I’ve located date it to 1910, but I think it’s probably an earlier central hallway form, later updated with the Queen Anne dormers and the exposed rafters. Several historic barns are well-maintained on the property, as well.

Anne Chamlee made this photograph just south of Oconee in March 1991. She shares my fascination with old log structures.

Abandoned Queen Anne House, Washington County

Anne Chamlee photographed this abandoned Queen Anne house, just south of Tennille, in March 1991. I have also photographed a good bit in the area and haven’t encountered it; I’m presuming it is no longer standing. I’d love to get an identification if anyone remembers it. [Anne was unable to get a photograph of the front of the house, but these images give a good idea as to its size and layout.]

Hall-and-Parlor House, Washington County

Anne Chamlee made this photograph, which she labeled “out in the boonies” in Spring 1991. Its present status is unknown.
