Vernacular House, Glynn County

Endangered House on US 17 Glynn County GA Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing Coastal Georgia USA 2016

This house is a bit of a landmark on US 17, north of Brunswick. I notice it every time I drive past it, because it seems so out of place. Its condition is rapidly deteriorating. It appears to have been built in the American Foursquare style, with slight modifications. I’m sure it’s one of the oldest houses on US 17 in Glynn County.

    It has a certain feel to it. Very old , yes. Was it a farm house, or part of a plantation?

    The old Home Place is still beautiful.

    • Sure, Nancy. Sounds great. You can email me at wbrianbrownATgmailDOTcom. I’ll be on the road most of the day but will look forward to hearing from you.

        I’ve sent you an email.

        Having major troubles. All of a sudden my dashboard is inaccessible. It was there this morning and blank this afternoon. I’ll get back in touch with you once I’ve found a way to get some help. Nancy

      • Computer problems are such a hassle. I totally understand and there’s certainly no rush.

      • thelensandpen

        Yep. Computers are great…until they aren’t! We are also moving on April 1, so a glitch right now Murphy’s Law. Take care.

    I don’t see anything that would give me any idea how old this house REALLY is…though I would like to know.

    Did not do well with Hurricane Irma unfortunately!

    This house looks much like the old James Hamilton Couper home at 6784 Browntown Rd in Waynesville, GA. Have you been there? I rented it for two years in the 1990’s. It was a wonderful place to live.

    The Vermacular House is what I was referring to re the J. H. Couper house. Sorry!

    This house has some significant fire damage in one of the upstairs bedrooms; I was on the first fire engine on scene when it happened.
