Commissary, Wilkinson County

I’m identifying this farm-related dependency as a commissary, based on the design; it could just as likely have been an office or other functional structure. I’m always grateful to property owners who recognize the importance of these places, allowing others to see a real link to the past. In my estimation, the boxed cornice returns on the gables would suggest a relatively early construction date [likely, late 19th century].
