Lewis-Cason House, 1905, Glynn County

Glynn County GA Anguilla Area Historic Farmhouse Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2015

This property has served as Cason’s and McDonald’s Dairy. After years of falling into disrepair, it was remodeled by Handy Jernigan. Thanks to Leah Cason and Dorothy Pepich for the background information. It’s a beautiful sight on Highway 99. It should always go without saying, but please note that this is private property.

    So special-I hope it’s being restored.

    Your Anguilla in Georgia was named after our Anguilla in the Caribbean, from which sea island cotton was first imported into Georgia, and where I am a student of history. I wonder if any Anguillians might have moved to your area, as they are rumoured to have done in Anguilla, Mississippi. Hazlehurst is not a traditional family name here.

      Interesting to know the history of name Anguilla…used to visit with my parents when I was a little girl…..the one in Glynn County, Georgia. And just to let you know: Hazelhurst is the name of a town in South Georgia, not a family name. A family from Hazelhurst may have bought Anguilla recently. I believe the Paulk family from Brunswick owned it in the 40’s. I was there visiting with my parents on Pearl Harbor Day, 1941.

        Thank you! Paulk is not a traditional name on our little Caribbean island.

        The Anguillat Plantation was originally the property of Robert Hazlehurst, who reportedly sold it to the Dovers. It has changed hands several times since

    According to the 2009 Glynn (https://www.glynncounty.org/DocumentCenter/Home/View/9254) Hist Survey pg 128 it was built in 1905 for the original owners of the Angulla Plantation. Perhaps a Robt. Hazlehurst descendant.

    Local historians in Hazlehurst, in South Georgia, believe their town was named after a civil engineer who designed a local railroad.
