Chapman House, Ludowici

Thanks to Mike McCall for sharing this photograph. This Plantation Plain house, which was located near the traffic light in Ludowici, has been gone for quite a few years. I’ll share more information when I have it.

Craftsman Farmhouse, Irwin County

This large Craftsman farmhouse and row of barns on Peach Road were obviously the center of a busy farm at one time. I made these photographs in 2001 and the structures were all gone by 2010-12.

Deberry Tobacco Barn, Irwin County

This film photograph, from 2002, is an earlier view of the barn near Spring Hill Primitive Baptist Church, seen here. It was the first tobacco barn I was able to document over a long period of time. Nancy Harper Redman writes: Hoke Deberry owned this property, which includes the spring from which the church gets its name…My Dad (the late Marcus F. Roberts of Berrien County) was related to some of the Deberrys. He played in that spring and woods when he was a small boy.

Toomer Medical Office & Boarding House, Fitzgerald

I believe the lower floor of this landmark was once the office of Fitzgerald’s first black physician, Dr. Edward Toomer. The structure has been historically known as a boarding house, primarily for black railroad men. Though other businesses have been located here, its connection to Dr. Toomer is certainly the most significant aspect of its history. Sadly, it was demolished in the spring of 2017.
