Randolf Williams House, Hog Hammock

A neighbor of Mr. Williams told me he was known in the neighborhood as the chicken man. This was his coop, made from available materials.

The neighbor also noted that some of his chickens are probably still roaming around Hog Hammock. I don’t know if this is one of them, but I’d like to think so.

James Hillery House, Circa 1938, Hog Hammock

This hall-and-parlor house is a wonderful surviving example of a once-common type in Hog Hammock, which has been nicely preserved by its present owners. The identification is from the late Cornelia Bailey, whom I had the pleasure of visiting on several of my Sapelo trips during the mid-2010s.

Ronster Johnson House, Circa 1910, Sapelo Island

Penny Butler Rossiter writes: This was the home of Ronster Johnson (1913-1994). It is in Johnson Hammock. He was the famous “storyteller” of Sapelo Island. Hopefully it will be restored one day. It is a “supporting structure” in Hog Hammock and is on The National Register. It is my understanding that, though it’s a separate neighborhood, Johnson Hammock is included in the National Register historic district.
