Jordan, Georgia

This commissary served the historic Jordan community.

I believe the entire area was all part of one historic farm property.

Tenant Farmhouses, Jordan

These tenant house are amazing survivors of a large historic farm that’s still in operation.

These photos were made over several years; I’ve photographed this area many times.

Without tenants, large farms in the early 20th century wouldn’t have been possible; beginning in the years after World War II, mechanization did away with the need for this economic model.

The houses were originally spread out nearly a mile in two directions from the Jordan crossroads.

They are endangered resources but it’s nice that the owner has allowed them to stand this long, when removing them would have been more practical.

 

Folk Victorian Farmhouse, Jordan

I believe this beautifully restored house is now used by a local ministry.
