Gable Front House, McIntosh County

“Unimproved” [read authentic] houses of this character are getting rare and I think it’s fortunate that a small handful of owners maintains them in their original state.

Gable Front House, Darien

Gable front houses are common in the Mentionville neighborhood. This was a widespread vernacular style throughout Georgia in the early 20th century.

The Cypress Bar & Lounge, Darien

This watering hole is a favorite with locals and I’ve always appreciated its mural of a cypress swamp. I believe it was named for the adjacent Cypress Cabin Court, (originally Delta Cabin Court, tourist cabins still standing and in use as apartments).

Their newest sign got my attention, and a laugh.
