Central Hallway House, Jewell

The Victorian porch posts and balustrade are later additions to the house, which appears to be of antebellum construction.

Reynolds House, Mayfield

One historic resource survey dates this Plantation Plain/I-House to circa 1860, but I believe it was built earlier than that. Other than the name of the first owner, I have been unsuccessful at locating more history.

Birdsong-Hill-Elliot House, Mayfield

As evidenced by its present state, Mayfield’s iconic Birdsong-Hill-Elliot House is likely in its last days without quick intervention. It has rapidly deteriorated since I last photographed it in 2014.

Mayfield Methodist Church, 1949, Hancock County

I believe this was built by the Mayfield Methodist Church to replace an earlier structure on the site dating to 1897. The property was a gift of Lena Birdsong. The congregation formed earlier in the 1890s and originally met in members’ homes and a one-room schoolhouse. Construction began on this church in 1949, but I’m not sure when it was completed. The congregation was never very large and disbanded years ago.

In recent years it has been home to a couple of African-American congregations, including the Mayfield Church of God in Christ and the Ogeechee Ministries of God.
