Dix House, Wilcox County

This is among the best known and most notable farmhouses in Wilcox County and is the centerpiece of what was once a large working farm. Most of the historic barns and dependencies survive. I have passed it in my travels since childhood and have always admired the dedication of the family to its upkeep. I’ll update with more history soon.

William Hardeman Paulk House, Irwin County

This huge Folk Victorian was located at the corner of Orchid and Violet Roads, off the Lax Highway. The photograph dates to 2001 and the house was gone before 2008, I believe. Thanks to Debbie Paulk Mixon, granddaughter of W. H. Paulk, for the identification.

I made this photo of a 19th century farmhouse in 2001. It was located in western Ben Hill County off Lower Rebecca Road and was likely among the oldest domestic structures in the county. It has been gone for many years.
