Gable-Front House, Meriwether County

This Craftsman-inspired gable front house was located near the Salem/Raleigh community, if my notes serve me correctly. It’s a nice example of the form.

The Lawn Ranger, McRae

I photographed this truck in 2010. It’s still one of my favorites and a good example of the ingenuity of our small-town businesses. It definitely got my attention.

Queen Anne Farmhouse, Evans County

This house appears to have been abandoned for a long time, but remains in good condition.

Rosehill, Georgia

Rosehill is a lost community in Oconee County. A post office named Rosehill was open from 1900-1904. Maps today identify it as Rose Hill.

This historic small farmstead would have likely been typical of such properties in the area in the early 20th century.

Folk Victorian House, Sale City

Ferguson Street, DeSoto

Edison City Jail, 1904

The nicely restored jail and fire engine are the centerpiece of a small park on Hartford Street.

Chevrolet Pickup, Telfair County

I took a different road and after heading down what turned out to be a dead end, I passed by this. I grew up around trucks like this and I like running across them, even when they look like this. This one looks to be from the early 1960s.

Roadside Art, Workmore

This old MG convertible and mannequin have been a roadside curiosity for as long as I can remember. They’re located in front of the old Workmore School. You might not call it art, but in lieu of a better description, that’s what I call it.

This was the commercial center of what was once known as Summit. It merged in 1920 with the adjacent town of Graymont to become Twin City.
