G. L. Haynes Funeral Home, Warrenton

This is an old African-American funeral home. It’s certainly one of the more unique such places I’ve seen.

Wilkes Memorial Church of God In Christ, Warrenton

This is such a photogenic church with the Holiness Unto the Lord sign emblazoned across the front. I spoke with a very nice gentleman who was either the pastor or a deacon who noted that it was originally home to a white congregation, built in the 1890s or early 1900s, and became Wilkes Memorial in the early 1950s.

Antebellum House, Warrenton

I’ve contacted Warrenton’s Main Street office for assistance in identifying some of its historic houses with no luck so far, but I would be comfortable saying this house is antebellum, and quite early. It’s of a transitional type I’ve encountered in some of Georgia’s oldest counties.  The Victorian porch posts are obviously a later addition.

Wellborn Plantation, Circa 1795, Warrenton

This is one of Warrenton’s oldest and most historic homes. It was once the center of a large working plantation. In 1858, the owner,  George Washington Hardaway, willed the plantation to his daughter, Frances Markham Hardaway Wellborn (Mrs. Marshall Wellborn).
