These old precinct houses, or precincts as most locals call these little buildings, are quickly fading from the landscape in South Georgia. Irwin County has as many of these than any other county I know of, and most have this same general style.

Hoggard Mill was a settlement on the banks of the Ichawaynochaway Creek. Courthouse usually refers to a voting precinct, but many also served as places where disputes could be settled and kept out of an actual court.

Located beside the Coleman calaboose, this may have been a precinct house or office building. Until I learn more, I will identify it as a precinct.
