Quality Signs, Jesup

As part of a renovation project on commercial storefronts in downtown Jesup, this sign painter’s storefront has been exposed. The typography would suggest the business likely dated to the 1950s or maybe the 1960s, but not the building itself. It’s likely much older. I just like the old sign and the design era it represents.

Enclosed Dogtrot Farmhouse, Wayne County

The original front door appears to have originally been a much wider opening, suggesting the house was built as a dogtrot.

Plantation Plain Farmhouse, Wayne County

A historic preservationist has suggested to me that he believes this to be one of the oldest surviving houses in lower Southeast Georgia, perhaps dating to the 1830s. Definitely antebellum and likely built within the first three decades of settlement in Wayne County, it features a recessed chimney and original log attached kitchen.

Eclectic Vernacular House, Odum

This is an unusual vernacular interpretation of the Craftsman style, with Folk Victorian porch posts.

Red Hill Baptist Church, Wayne County

Though a new church has been built adjacent to this one, the old Red Hill Baptist Church is still standing. It’s a large rural church with an historic cemetery on the property, as well.
