Vanishing Georgia, Coming Soon!

Vanishing Georgia, Coming Soon!

After 13+ years of managing multiple websites, I have begun the process of merging them into one site. This process should be complete within the next few weeks.

Vanishing South Georgia [2008-2021]

Vanishing South Georgia, Vanishing North Georgia, and Vanishing Coastal Georgia will soon become Vanishing Georgia, to consolidate searches and to make all of my archive available in one space. The new site will feature nearly 7,600 locations with approximately 25,000 individual images. The site’s appearance and functionality should remain relatively consistent with a few new additions.

There may be some small glitches during the process, but I’m doing everything I can to make it a clean transition.

Lexington Presbyterian Church, 1893, Oglethorpe County

The present home of the Lexington Presbyterian Church dates to 1893, but the congregation is one of Georgia’s most historic, originating with a group of Pennsylvania missionaries who came to the area in 1785 to witness to Native Americans. The early church was formally established on 20 December 1785 about three miles south of the present location by John Newton and was named Beth-Salem.

The congregation has dwindled to just a few members today and upkeep of the church has been difficult as a result. Hopefully, this treasure will be preserved.

Zachry-Kingston House, Circa 1830, Morgan County

This early Plantation Plain with Federal details was restored circa 1985. Windows, weatherboarding, chimneys, and the front portico were all replaced with historic materials. Two outbuildings were also added to the property at the time of the restoration.

The well-maintained home is located near the Oconee River near the community of Buckhead.

Stuart House, Circa 1890, Morgan County

A resource survey identifies this simply as “Mrs. Stuart’s House”. I hope to learn more about it.

It’s a nice example of a Folk Victorian farmhouse and has been brought back to an earlier appearance after the removal of asbestos siding and awning.

Talmadge Cooper House, 1866, Morgan County

The only information I can locate on this property identifies it as the Talmadge Cooper place. The house was built in 1866 and the Queen Anne/Second Empire details added circa 1870.

Robin’s Nest, 1830s, Morgan County

This Greek Revival landmark is also known as The Oaks Plantation and the Bennett-McIntire House, for previous owners. It is a beautifully maintained property. Morgan County notes that the earliest deed extant for the house dates to 1840, but it likely predates that by a few years. It was on the old stage road between Charleston and New Orleans.
