Floyd Farm Tobacco Barns, Pembroke

Just outside Pembroke, this row of tobacco barns is reminiscent of a scene that was once common throughout Georgia. Productive farmers often situated their tobacco barns in close proximity on dirt lanes like this one. While many wouldn’t expect to find tobacco cultivation near the coast, northern Bryan County, where Pembroke is located, is more similar to inland Georgia than Coastal Georgia.

Jan Deal Henrix notes that the barns were originally owned by Albert Floyd and are now owned by his nephew.

The barns are in amazing condition, considering they likely date from the 1940s or 1950s.

Thanks to Linda Shaver Starling for bringing these to my attention.

Dr. J. Oscar Strickland House, 1912, Pembroke

Jan Deal Hendrix writes: The house shown here was the Doctor J. Oscar Strickland house who was a son of J.W. Strickland, first mayor. J.W. was my great grandfather and Doc was my great Uncle, brother to my grandmother. J.W. built the home across the street from this and it was later remodeled by J.O. Bacon. It is still there and is owned by the First Baptist church.
