This appears to have been built as a double-pen house with a later rear addition.

I was amazed that this house on Five Bridge Road is still standing. I began photographing it around 2005 and it look essentially the same today.

Powell Farm, Lanier County

This farmhouse is located just north of Lakeland. It’s an interesting vernacular form which immediately caught my eye as I was driving toward Pearson.

It’s part of an historic farmstead that is presently listed for sale.

My guess is that it dates to the late-19th or early-20th century.

Two pack houses or seed barns are located on the property.

A nice tobacco barn also survives.

Historic Farmstead, Irwin County

I last photographed this farm in 2010. In my younger days, riding all the dirt roads of Irwin County, it was always a landmark and a favorite. Returning recently, I was amazed how much the property has deteriorated.

The wonderful old hay and stock barn remains, but it will soon be gone, like the sheds which stood adjacent to it (left of barn, below). They syrup shed I photographed in 2010 is also gone.

Other barns, in varying states of ruin, are scattered around the property.

The barn below was likely a tractor barn.

The storage barn or packhouse is holding up better than most of the other structures.

The tobacco barn is nearly gone, too.

It was a sad sight, driving away from the main yard.

And at last, the old tenant house is still intact.
