Folk Victorian Farmhouse, Sumter County

There are two ghost towns in Georgia named Pennington. One is in Morgan County, near Madison, and the other is here in Sumter County, just a mile or two from Andersonville. A large plantation was once located here but it has long since vanished.

Folk Victorian House, 1890, Stilson

 

This house has an overall Queen Anne appearance, but is more properly a Folk Victorian. The style is relatively uncommon but I’ve found several examples throughout Southeast Georgia.

This example retains its large original kitchen, attached at some point by a hallway.

One of the most interesting features of this house is the ornamental porch frieze.
