Jones-Winburn House, Circa 1850s, Midville

Mary M. Rugg writes: This is the Jones-Winburn home, built in the mid 1800’s of [hand-hewn] native pine logs pinned together with wooden pegs. It was the first house in Midville. The original pine log foundation was given to James A. Jones as a wedding gift from his father F. A. Jones. It is believed that the original pine log house had been in the family since before the Revolutionary War.

Jones Lindgren notes that a distant relative, Bess Jones Winburn lived here until her death in the 1960s. It has hints of an Augusta Sand Hills Cottage, though is not nearly as elevated as most examples of that style. The recessed dormers are an unusual feature.

Rosier, Georgia

Were it not for the shiny new silos, Rosier would appear to be a ghost town, but while it may be more commercial than residential, it’s still a busy part of Burke County.

General Store, Rosier

This was a general store in its earliest incarnation. It’s now part of the extensive agribusiness concern located in Rosier.

Quonset Hut, Rosier

Rosier is an agricultural center in Burke County and this was probably related to an older agribusiness.

This mill on Brushy Creek is located on private property. I photographed it from the roadside. I’d like to know more about its history.
