Gabled-Ell Cottage, Riceboro

A recent clear-cutting operation has exposed several historic structures in the nearly forgotten African-American community of Chatman. Today, Chatman is part of Riceboro and can’t even be found on most maps. It’s possible that this structure, another nearby house, and store, were part of a turpentine operation, but I can’t confirm that.

Update: As of 2015, this house has collapsed.
