Ruins of Hogan-Hammett House, Corinth

Lee Roy Hammett was the last owner of this house and loved its history so much he was buried on the grounds. His nephew, whom I talked to while photographing it, notes that it was originally built for the daughter of a member of the Hogan family, namesakes of nearby Hogansville. Unfortunately, prohibitive costs of modernization and toxic material removal have lead to its present condition. Much of the material is being salvaged for use in other projects.
