Rushing Barn, Circa 1912, Bulloch County

This hay and stock barn, owned by the John Rushing family, is a twin to the famous Coleman Barn (Big Barn) located about 35 miles away in Candler County.

Charles Rushing notes that the Coleman and Rushing families were cousins, explaining the similarity of the two barns. The Coleman barn and this example are among the two nicest early-20th-century barns in South Georgia. They are landmarks in their own right.

Thanks to James Lanier for background and Kenneth Dixon for location information.

    My Grandfather built this barn! And the Coleman’s were our cousins.
