Five days after the storm, snow remains in shady spots, like this swamp in the Altamaha floodplain.

Parker Cabin & Commissary, Wefanie

While I was out photographing with Mike McCall today, we ran into Jimmy Parker, who noted that he was born in this cabin and restored it in recent years.

This commissary was part of the family’s timber and turpentine operations and was at its busiest during World War II.

South Georgia Snowstorm, 2018

On 3 January 2018, Winter Storm Grayson dumped snow all over Southeast Georgia, transforming the region into a winter wonderland.

As snow goes, it may not seem like much, but many locales received their first measurable snowfall in nearly 30 years.

Snow plows and sand trucks are rarely seen in these parts.

The snow was nicest in the woods.

Because of the novelty of this kind of weather in our part of the world, people were out enjoying it throughout the day.

Mary McQueen House, Ludowici

Mary McQueen was the daughter of Allen Johnston. A railroad station first designated as “Four and a Half” was established near Johnston’s plantation. The small community which grew up around it came to be known as Johnston Station, the forerunner of modern Ludowici. Mrs. McQueen was perhaps the greatest benefactor and patron of the arts in Ludowici’s early days, most notably donating the land in front of this house for the construction of the Ludowici Well Pavilion. Today, the pavilion is the emblem of Ludowici and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. More information about the history of the area can be found here.

This view was made after the South Georgia Snowstorm of 2018.

Henry Walcott House, Circa 1855, Long County

This landmark antebellum farmhouse is in largely original condition. Because of its lack of modification, it’s one of the most important houses in the area.

Unfortunately, I’ve not been able to locate much about the early history of the house. Local lore suggests that Mr. Walcott wasn’t the original owner but that he was the man most associated with the house and making improvements to the surrounding farmland.

Though it’s in need of stabilization, the overall condition of the house is good.

And here’s the house seen after the South Georgia Snowstorm of 2018.
