Central Hallway House, Freedmen’s Grove

This was a commonly seen house style in Gullah-Geechee and other African-American communities on the Georgia coast in the late-19th and early-20th centuries. Vernacular houses focused on practicality over style, but over time have come to be appreciated for their unassuming simplicity. Most older examples on the coast are endangered.
