Mitchell J. Green Plantation, 1878, Evans County

Intact historic farms survive only through the care of generations of families; the Mitchell J. Green plantation in Evans County is an excellent example. In 1868, after service in the Confederacy, Mr. Green built a log cabin  on the property and commenced farming. The thriving operation became the center of a small community known as Green and had its own post office from 1882-1904. Mr. Green served as postmaster. A Plantation Plain farmhouse with Victorian accents, built in 1878, anchors the property. Numerous dependencies remain.

Commissaries are iconic components of Georgia’s plantations and many remained in use on larger farms until World War II. The Green Commissary appears to be in excellent condition; the shed protrusion is likely a later addition.

The stock/hay barn is the largest outbuilding on the property.

Craftsman Farmhouse, Irwin County

I made this film photograph in 2005 and the house was demolished by 2010. It was located just inside Irwin County on Evergreen Road.

Central Hallway Farmhouse, Irwin County

I’ve always admired this well-maintained house but have never known its history. I would guess it dates to the 1870s or 1880s.
