Tenant Farmhouse, Irwin County

I’ve been photographing this wonderful tenant house for nearly 15 years. It’s a great example of a once-common form.

Brown Tenant House, Dodge County

I believe this tenant house was once owned by Max Brown. Its proximity to the railroad track makes me wonder if it ever had any relation to the turpentine business at nearby Godwinsville.

Turpentine Cabin, Tetlow

This is about as good a view as can be had of this shotgun house in northwestern Wayne County. It’s located in the vicinity of Tetlow, which still exists on the map and in a nearby road name, but seems lost to history otherwise. Because there are the remains of several nearly identical shotgun houses at the site, I presume this was a turpentine camp at one time. The area in which its located was heavily involved in the naval stores and timber industries throughout much of the twentieth century; the camp was likely abandoned by the 1960s.

Thanks to Robert Graham for bringing this house to my attention. It’s a wonderful example of a vernacular farmhouse.

Pyramidal Roof Tenant Farmhouses, Telfair County

These are two of  the best-preserved houses of this style I have found. Once common throughout Georgia, they’re increasingly rare today.
