Round Barn, Laurens County

Round Barn, Laurens County, Georgia, 1974 © David Frey

I was so excited to receive this image from David Frey of an historic round barn in Laurens County; he was gracious enough to let me share it. He made the photograph in 1974, noting that it was a landmark to travelers between Dublin and Wrightsville in those days; the barn is still standing but no longer accessible to the public. As a result, I’m unable to share an exact location. This example is of the octagonal variety and though I have no idea as to a date, my best estimate would be 1900-1910.

A brief review of available references on the subject suggests this may be the only surviving round barn in Georgia; a 14-sided example, the Dorough Round Barn at Hickory Level in Carroll County is listed on the National Register of Historic Places but is apparently in ruins or no longer extant.

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.

Hay Barn, Irwin County

This barn was located on Highway 32, a few miles from the Coffee County line. I made this photograph in 2002 and am not sure if it’s still standing.
