Colonial Revival House, Midville

This eclectic Colonial Revival house appears to be earlier than the 1900 date given on realty websites. If so, it likely originated as a simple Georgian Cottage.

Midville Grammar School

My identification of this structure is tentative. It appears to have been a school, and since the old Midville High School survives, my guess is that this was the grammar, or elementary, school. It has most recently been used as the Midville Voting Precinct.

Midville United Methodist Church, 1939, Burke County

This church was organized on 18 March 1876. I believe the present structure is an expansion and remodeling of the original wooden church building, dating to 1878. From 1932-1939, Ralph Herman Sandeford oversaw the modernization.

Long House, Girard

Among the houses I’ve encountered in Georgia, this is an unusual form of the Queen Anne style. Dale Reddick writes: Folks from around the Girard area are saying this was the home of Mr. Frank and Mrs. Sybil Long. He worked for Southern Bell. Two individuals have agreed on the identification.
