Pyramidal Roof Farmhouse, Pulaski County

I’ve been passing this old farmhouse all my life and somehow it has survived. It looked just like this 20 years ago, so maybe it will be around for a long time to come. It’s actually a pyramidal roof cottage with and extension at the back.

Commissary, Pulaski County

I photographed this commissary on US 129 south of Hawkinsville in 2010. I believe it was razed a couple of years later.

Colonial Revival House, Hawkinsville

For as long as I can remember, this house across the street from the old hospital has been abandoned. It would be a wonderful restoration project.

Midway Baptist Church, Circa 1921, Pulaski County

Midway Baptist can trace its origins to one of the oldest congregations in Pulaski County. Originally part of the Old Adam Meeting House in the long-vanished Lampkin community, Midway was formed around 1838 as the result of a split among church members. Upon finally moving into their first permanent church home in 1857, which was located about halfway between Old Limestone Church on Chicken Road and the old Daniels Church on Lower River Road, they named it Midway. By the 1890s the old Midway congregation had outgrown the meeting house and built a new church, which they called New Midway, in 1894. It was destroyed by a tornado in 1915 and construction on the present church began. Work was delayed by World War I and completed three years later, circa 1921.
