Another Long County Landmark Faces Demolition

The present owners of this house, known as the Vickers-Howard House, are seeking someone who can move it or salvage the timber; otherwise it faces imminent demolition. It is my understanding that the owners prefer to see it moved but they can’t wait long. Considering the recent loss of the antebellum Hendley Foxworth Horne House, and the looming loss of the Johnston House, it would be wonderful if someone could purchase and save this one.

If you or someone you know is serious about purchasing and moving this house, you can contact the owner here. Please do not contact them if you are not serious. [As a matter of disclosure I am not an agent of nor do I represent the owners of this property. The link is shared from social media].

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.

Unidentified Ludowici Tile House, Ludowici

This is an early vernacular house with Ludowici tile roofing. The central chimney could indicate a saddlebag origin. It’s thought to be the last survivor of the factory housing built for the Ludowici tile factory; residents note that there were once quite a few of these, and the neighborhood was known as the “White Line”.

This house is pictured in the 1922 real photo postcard seen below. The First Baptist Church relocated and the community house/library took its place. I hope to learn more about the house.
