Gable Front House, McIntosh County

“Unimproved” [read authentic] houses of this character are getting rare and I think it’s fortunate that a small handful of owners maintains them in their original state.

Gable Front House, Darien

Gable front houses are common in the Mentionville neighborhood. This was a widespread vernacular style throughout Georgia in the early 20th century.

The Cypress Bar & Lounge, Darien

This watering hole is a favorite with locals and I’ve always appreciated its mural of a cypress swamp. I believe it was named for the adjacent Cypress Cabin Court, (originally Delta Cabin Court, tourist cabins still standing and in use as apartments).

Their newest sign got my attention, and a laugh.

Factors Row & Factors Walk, Savannah

In the years following the Civil War, much of Savannah’s riverfront was filled with four- and five-story cotton warehouses. The lower riverfront level was where the cotton was stored and the top floors (facing Bay Street) served as offices for the cotton factors (brokers), who set prices and traded their most valuable product around the world. The offices are known as Factors Row, while the iron bridges which connected them to the city are known collectively as Factors Walk. They date variously from the late antebellum to late Reconstruction era. Today, the buildings are home to shops and restaurants, but the city and business owners have worked hard to retain the historic integrity of the structures.
