Enclosed Dogtrot Farmhouse, Wayne County

The original front door appears to have originally been a much wider opening, suggesting the house was built as a dogtrot.

Plantation Plain Farmhouse, Wayne County

A historic preservationist has suggested to me that he believes this to be one of the oldest surviving houses in lower Southeast Georgia, perhaps dating to the 1830s. Definitely antebellum and likely built within the first three decades of settlement in Wayne County, it features a recessed chimney and original log attached kitchen.

Eclectic Vernacular House, Odum

This is an unusual vernacular interpretation of the Craftsman style, with Folk Victorian porch posts.

Double-Pen Tenant House, Wayne County

Thanks to Richard Herrin for bringing this tenant house near Madray Springs to my attention.

Though highly endangered, it’s a great survivor of the tenant farming era.

The rear features a shed room which runs the width of the house, typical of such structures.
