Lula & Arthur Wright House, Circa 1900, Brookman

Brookman GA Lula & Arthur Wright House Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2015

Lula & Arthur Wright built this once-grand Folk Victorian around the turn of the last century. When surveyed for Glynn County in 2009, the house still retained a front porch with hand-carved Queen Anne posts. When I found it the other day, the porch had collapsed and the yard was overgrown. It will be a real loss, as it represents a more accomplished architecture than is usually associated with rural black communities of its day.

    Enjoying your photographs! I see you have Walthourville, GA on your list. I wondered if you have been to the Walthourville church yet along with other structures that may be of interest to you? Keep up the good work!.
