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.

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.

Tenant Farmhouse, Irwin County

I’ve been photographing this wonderful tenant house for nearly 15 years. It’s a great example of a once-common form.

Pyramidal Roof House, Lilly

I’ve always liked this house and was amazed it was still someone’s home until very recently. It appears to have taken on some storm damage since the last time I was through Lilly.
