Deberry Tobacco Barn, Irwin County

This film photograph, from 2002, is an earlier view of the barn near Spring Hill Primitive Baptist Church, seen here. It was the first tobacco barn I was able to document over a long period of time. Nancy Harper Redman writes: Hoke Deberry owned this property, which includes the spring from which the church gets its name…My Dad (the late Marcus F. Roberts of Berrien County) was related to some of the Deberrys. He played in that spring and woods when he was a small boy.

Powell Farm, Lanier County

This farmhouse is located just north of Lakeland. It’s an interesting vernacular form which immediately caught my eye as I was driving toward Pearson.

It’s part of an historic farmstead that is presently listed for sale.

My guess is that it dates to the late-19th or early-20th century.

Two pack houses or seed barns are located on the property.

A nice tobacco barn also survives.

Historic Farmstead, Irwin County

I last photographed this farm in 2010. In my younger days, riding all the dirt roads of Irwin County, it was always a landmark and a favorite. Returning recently, I was amazed how much the property has deteriorated.

The wonderful old hay and stock barn remains, but it will soon be gone, like the sheds which stood adjacent to it (left of barn, below). They syrup shed I photographed in 2010 is also gone.

Other barns, in varying states of ruin, are scattered around the property.

The barn below was likely a tractor barn.

The storage barn or packhouse is holding up better than most of the other structures.

The tobacco barn is nearly gone, too.

It was a sad sight, driving away from the main yard.

And at last, the old tenant house is still intact.
