Gabled-Ell Tenant Farmhouse, Morgan County

The gabled-ell or winged gable form is one of the most common of the vernacular house types of the late 19th and early 20th centuries in rural Georgia. Most of these originated as small central hallway or hall-and-parlor houses and were expanded as a family’s needs required more space.

This photo was made in 2015 and I believe it was on Nolan Store Road. I’m not sure if it was near the Nolan Plantation, though.

    I just was going to say my great grandparents house had the central hallway. I lived in an old house that was an old farmhouse that had a parlor.
