Eclectic Farmhouse-Walker County, Georgia

Tax records indicate this home was built in 1898. I suspect it started out as a plantation plain, and then the addition of the front rooms with the porch was added at some point.

This is what could be seen in the upper room windows.

William Olliff Farm-Adabelle, Georgia

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, William Olliff built the house for his family in 1872. The late Victorian farmhouse with Italianate details is a rare find in rural Georgia. It’s located near Register and Adabelle.

Dogtrot-Dublin, Georgia

A dogtrot house consists of two rooms, one for living and sleeping. The other was used for cooking and dining. The large central breezeway would help circulate air during the hot summer months. The name dogtrot stuck because dogs (and other animals) could run through the open-air space with ease.
