Maddux-Flournoy House, Circa 1840, Jasper County

Jasper County 19th Century Farmhouse Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing North Georgia USA 2015

This house appears to empty, but in good shape. Like many I-Houses (Plantation Plain), it’s been modified and expanded over time. My friend Andrew Wood writes: “The original log cabin (which appears as the middle section in your photo) was built in the 1810’s or 20’s by John Brewer with the front section built in the 1830’s (though i think 1840’s at least) and the rear kitchen wing probably in the 1850’s”.

As of November 2017, I’ve learned that this house is imminently endangered and faces a very uncertain future. I hope it can be saved.

Update: As of 2019 this house has reportedly been moved.
