This is oldest known home in Morgan County, Georgia. It was built around 1805. This plantation plain is on remarkably well-maintained land. I understand there is a plan to stabilize and save the home.
Built in 1906, this house is part of the Nolan plantation, Morgan County, Georgia. It is the second Nolan home on the property. The other one is supposedly still standing but isn’t easily accessible. The Nolan family built their wealth on the backs of enslaved labor prior to the Civil War. After the war, they switched to a sharecropping method of farming. There’s been talk for several years to preserve the home, but restoration has not been started. The Madison-Morgan Conservancy have been trying to get work done. The home was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2015.
During the pandemic, I have spent a lot of time in my car traveling backroads looking for places to photograph. This pre-Civil War home was an unexpected find.
