Shotgun House, Telfair County

Though not the traditional style shotgun house, this is a good example of a slight variation of this iconic vernacular form. It’s wider than most shotgun houses, but is still just two rooms connected by a common doorway.

This style house was once common in turpentine camps but was also utilized on large farms. This one seems to have been recently exposed and as is often the case the property is likely to be cleared in the near future.

No one who lived in these types of houses had an easy life, but they were often an improvement over the drafty log housing common with the working class a few decades earlier.
