This appears to have originally been a textbook Craftsman; I’m assuming the extra shingles and round columns may have been later additions.

This old farmhouse appears to be undergoing renovation. I believe it was originally more Queen Anne in appearance but the present porch configuration hides some of those elements.

This is essentially a Georgian cottage with Italianate details. Russell Davidson writes: This is the “home place” of John & Leo Phillips, two of Cochran’s most successful businessmen and lawyers. They have let some of their farm operations take over the house.

This is one of the largest homes of its type I’ve found in South Georgia. I hope to learn more of its history.

Celebrating its centennial this year, the Bleckley County Courthouse was designed by the firm of Sayre & Baldwin. Historic markers on the front lawn memorialize well-known local citizens, including this one, dedicated to Sergeant John F. Conner, Sr., a policeman killed in the line of duty.
