Gabled-Ell Farmhouse, Montgomery County

If you’ve followed this website over the years, you’re likely familiar with the “gabled-ell” form, so named for its overall “L” shape, and an expansion of the central hallway house type. They are among the most common types of old farmhouses remaining in rural Georgia, though they are often found abandoned. They remain because they were built so well and are a testament to the skills of their builders.

These photos was made in 2013 somewhere near the crossroads settlement of McGregor. I’m unsure if the house is still standing.

    For about five years, I published The Montgomery Monitor. Fine people up there. The old Monitor building right off the courthouse was owned by Hugh Peterson, the first district congressman, and I rented the building from his widow, Miss Pat. Had a repainted Coca cola sign onits side. Looks good still.
