Wasdan House, Boston

This house was built by the Wasdan family and was briefly home to a Wasdan daughter, who married a Huffmaster. Resource surveys date the structure to 1914, but I believe this to be incorrect.

    I have seen this house for years and years! My grandfather’s house is across the street from it……it was in view from his porch! I have taken pictures of it in recent years! …..I love me some Historical places…:-) (Rodney Hiers)

    Actually this was not the Huffmaster house. It was the Wasdan house and the daughter married a Huffmaster and they did live there very briefly.

    For a long time this was the Huffmaster home,the last adult son to live there was killed in a automobile accident.

      Thanks, Stan! I’ve always admired this house and now I have a name to apply to it. Even if they weren’t the only ones who lived there, I’ll change the title to reflect your information…

    Just came across this site – have been viewing your photos on flickr for some time now and really, really was happy to come across more info on you and on this photo in particular. I just love it! Very unhappy to hear that it might not exist anymore.
    Want to thank you for all your effort in “preserving” these places – my relatives are from southern GA (Young family from Quitman), and you are my “eyes” to this area – I have lived my life in MA. Can’t tell you what it means to view your photos – they give me a “sense of place” that I could not get otherwise…I am truly so grateful for your sensibility and caring that our heritage does not disappear.

        Your wonderful pictures and coverage were instrumental in my daughter taking me on a road trip yesterday to Boston and Quitman. Thanks so much for the great historical work you do.

    I love this olde house!!
    I used to work at the Walker Dairy Farm on Hickory Head Rd. off Hwy. 221 near Quitman. Passed by this olde house all the time on the way to work.

    Stumbed upon this site while searching for info on South GA Agriculture.
