Auburn, 1899, Long County

This was the home of Helen Williams Coxon (1899-1989), a pioneer journalist,editor, and publisher (The Ludowici News). Known statewide as the “Lady from Long”, she served in the Georgia House of Representatives and the Georgia Senate. She was also the first woman on the State Board of Pardons and Paroles, serving the year it was created (1943). The home, known as Auburn, was built by Helen’s father, Harry Guston Williams (1864-1937), who came from Warren County, North Carolina, to Georgia, and eventually operated thirteen sawmills. It remains in the family.

Rushing Barn, Bulloch County

This hay and stock barn, owned by the John Rushing family, is a twin to the famous Coleman Barn (Big Barn) located about 35 miles away in Candler County. I haven’t been able to determine anything about the builder of either, but he should be known for his wonderful work. The Coleman barn and this example are among the two nicest early-20th-century barns in South Georgia. They are landmarks in their own right.

Thanks to James Lanier for background and Kenneth Dixon for location information.
