Brown-Boyer House, Circa 1894, Hancock County

This house is in ruins and likely too far gone to save. Sistie Hudson writes: My clerk, Borderick Foster and his family lived there for many years. He said it belonged to Jimmy Boyer when they rented it, and prior to that, belonged to Jimmy Boyer’s Granddaddy, George Brown… If I am not mistaken, Mr. Brown was a County Commissioner at one time, but I need to double check.

Ridgeway Baptist Church, Circa 1865, Gilmer County

Ridgeway Baptist is one of the most historic congregations in Gilmer County and the original log church building, dating to around the end of the Civil War, is perhaps the most unique survivor in Gilmer County. Thanks to Sonny Seals of Historic Rural Churches of Georgia for bringing this special place to my attention.

Church members  have worked hard to preserve this little log chapel and their effort speaks volumes to their commitment to history. Though the structure is showing its age, I like to think it will be around for many years to come.

A new church, built in 1982, is located across the road from the old chapel.

1st Street, Woodland

I hope to learn more about Woodland. The town was incorporated in 1908 but was settled long before then. It would be nice to see its small but historic commercial core listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
