Queen Anne Folk Victorian Farmhouse & Barn, Marion County

This historic farmhouse is a great example of Folk Victorian architecture.

As is somewhat common in this area, local stone was used in the construction of the chimney.

Abandoned House, Rupert

I believe this was a house, but it’s possible it was a store. It’s located at the center of what was once Rupert. It’s difficult to distinguish the town site today.

Gabled-Ell Farmhouse, Macon County

This photograph dates to 2009. The house was located between Marshallville and Garden Valley; I’m not sure if it’s still standing.

General Store, Washington County

If not a general store, this was possibly a commissary, precinct house, or even a schoolhouse. I will update when I learn more.

Central Hallway House, Taylor County

The hand-sawed porch posts elevate this simple form to an important example of local craftsmanship. I hope to learn more about its history.

Tenant Farmhouse, Crawford County

This was likely part of the Pearson peach farming operation located in Crawford and Peach counties.

General Store, Kibbee

There was a post office in Kibbee from 1886-1976. Since post offices were often located in stores in the smallest communities, it’s possible that it was located here, but this building was likely long out of service by 1976. It was more likely located at T. A Blocker’s store out on the highway.
