Second Empire House, 1885, Columbus

Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been posting from all over the place, unlike my usual fashion of posting multiple locations from a more specific area. I’m presently cleaning up thousands of old photos on the website, as well as repairing issues that happened when I rolled all the websites into one. It’s a grueling background process which will make Vanishing Georgia infinitely better, but much of it won’t be obvious for a long time. In the process of doing this work, which will take about a year, I’m discovering many photographs that somehow never got published. I just wanted to let everyone know. Thanks as always for your support.

    Keep up the Good work! I had a chance to save an 1820 ancestral home in North Carolina built with mortise and tenon pegs the size of ballpark hotdogs. I didn’t get around to it and it has since burned down. One of my biggest regrets. Best,

    What a wonderful house! Thanks so much for your documenting these, and then sharing them online, so those of us who may not get to see them in person can still enjoy seeing them, and appreciate your (abbreviated) history behind them. It is MOST interesting to those of us who are interested in and appreciate the merits of history (especially Georgia history), architecture, and geography.
