South Georgia Snowstorm, 2018
On 3 January 2018, Winter Storm Grayson dumped snow all over Southeast Georgia, transforming the region into a winter wonderland.
As snow goes, it may not seem like much, but many locales received their first measurable snowfall in nearly 30 years.
Snow plows and sand trucks are rarely seen in these parts.
The snow was nicest in the woods.
Because of the novelty of this kind of weather in our part of the world, people were out enjoying it throughout the day.
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].
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”.
