Still going strong after a century, Bryant’s Gin was running full steam when I stopped in Bartow recently. Cotton remains one of Georgia’s most important crops.
The present gin in Bartow dates to the 1950s, replacing an earlier facility.
Several old warehouses remain.

Millhaven dates to 1769. It’s grown over the past two centuries into a mixed-purpose property that still includes active farming operations, timber holdings and hunting reservations. Today, it’s owned by William S. Morris III of the Morris Communications Company, who has received awards for its conservation and management. That’s no small accomplishment considering it’s the largest farm operating as a single unit east of the Mississippi. The images that follow represent employee-related structures from the early to mid-20th century. I’d like to know more about them.
I’m not sure if the building below was a home or if it had a more public use.
