Single-Pen House, Mount Pleasant

Among my earliest photographs for Vanishing Georgia, this depicts a single-pen house with a shed room, located in the historic Mount Pleasant community of southeastern Wayne County. I’m not sure if it’s still standing, or whether it was original to the location.

Information about Mount Pleasant is scarce, but it had a post office from 1855-1948. Along with short-lived sites at Chauncey’s Ferry (1849-1850), Pendarvis’s Store (1849-1858), (Linder’s Bluff (1854-1857), and Bennettsville (1855-1859), it was one of the first communities in Wayne County to have an official post office.
