Pharmer Chapel A.M.E. Church, Rochelle

There’s no sign at this church and I can’t determine if it’s active or not. It’s a nice form. Thanks to Alice Knipp Garnto, who had previously photographed it, for the identification.

Roberts-Scott House, Circa 1910, Claxton

This home was built by Gilliard Roberts, an early African-American entrepreneur who had businesses in Savannah and Claxton. It was later owned by Walter & Mattie Scott, Julius Caesar Banks, and served as a boarding house and apartment house for teachers.

Tree of Knowledge, Broxton

This is a popular gathering place in Broxton. A young lady from the neighborhood stopped by while I was photographing and noted that “Mr. Possum”, who lives adjacent to the property, keeps things clean around the tree.
