Hall-and-Parlor Farmhouse, Ben Hill County

I photographed this house, which was located near the Fitzgerald Airport, in 2010. It had collapsed by 2017 [or earlier]. The hall-and-parlor form is often associated with tenant housing in South Georgia, though many tenants ended up owning the houses and using them as residences after the sharecropping era.

    I took photo of this house on the road to amTifton Ga when I was visiting my home in Fitzgerald, Ga. Photo taken in July 2022. It is my favorite house. My main residence is in California. If this is the same house in your photo. The house is still standing. Where is your photo exactly. I fell in love with the house reminded me of the house I am renewing in Fitzgerald my Great Grandmother’s home built in early 1900. Brenda Gardner Wright
