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.

Double-Pen Tenant House, Wayne County

Thanks to Richard Herrin for bringing this tenant house near Madray Springs to my attention.

Though highly endangered, it’s a great survivor of the tenant farming era.

The rear features a shed room which runs the width of the house, typical of such structures.

Union Passenger Station, 1900s, Hawkinsville

Though various sources are in conflict as to the specifics, this depot is thought to have been built by the Southern Railway between 1900-1910. It has been in use by an agribusiness company for many years.

Taylor Memorial Hospital, 1938, Hawkinsville

This hospital was chartered in 1936. Robert Jenks Taylor gave the city $100,000 for construction of the hospital in memory of his father, Dr. Eziekiel Henry Taylor, and his grandfather, Dr. Robert Newsome Taylor, Hawkinsville’s first physicians. It closed in early 1977 with the completion of a newer facility north of town.  After being in a state of disrepair for many years it is presently being restored for use as apartments.

Colonial Revival House, Hawkinsville

For as long as I can remember, this house across the street from the old hospital has been abandoned. It would be a wonderful restoration project.
