This central hallway farmhouse has been expanded over time. A smokehouse (or packhouse) remains on the property.

My Uncle George and his wife Pearl Acree had a mill in Banks County I believe near the Stephens Co. line. My Father took me there once 20 yrs ago. The wheel still turns. If you are ever able to photo, please let me know.
I’ll look for it when I’m up there next time. Thanks.
Kathy, your hubby, my brother Dick and I grew up in a house that looked a lot like this…never saw paint. It dated back before the Civil War.had a huge hallway down center with bedrooms on either side. Addition on back was living room, kitchen and bathroom…Indoors! I believe this hallway was originally an open breezeway in what was called a dog trot house. Classic southern design before air conditioning. Lots of memories !
