Wrightsboro Restoration, 1976, McDuffie County

In 1976, the Bicentennial Project of the Wrighstboro Foundation and the Kiokee Rifle Club reconstructed a circa 1840 cabin from its original location in Dearing (above) and stabilized the 1918 Hawes General Store original to the location (below). The structures are located across Wrightsboro Road from the Wrightsboro Methodist Church and if you plan on visiting, park across the road at the church. It’s an interesting look back into an important period in Georgia’s early development. The cabin isn’t included in the district, but the store is.

    These pictures of the Rock House are excellent. I descend from Thomas Ansley. My research shows that Thomas and Rebecca Cox Ansley were members of a Presbyterian Church in N. J. I think that they traveled with the Quakers to Orange County, N. C., and then to Georgia because of the respect shown the Quakers because they were known to be peaceful people.
