James Walker House, 1890, Darien

This Folk Victorian was built for James Walker, who I understand at the time was chairman of the McIntosh County Commission. The architect/builder is identified as James Gone. Other owners have been the Fox, Valenti, Fishburn, and Bramlett families.

Eclectic Craftsman Bungalow, Circa 1915, Darien

Though it has been modified, this one-and-a-half story cottage originated as a Craftsman. Some elements of its original appearance have survived.

Tidewater Commissioner’s Office, Circa 1875, Darien

This was originally a small office building. It was later expanded and has been a residence for many years. I believe Raymond Clancy, whose Georgian Cottage still stands across the street, was the Tidewater commissioner in question. I’m still trying to track down a history of the Tidewater Commission.

Gale House, 1875, Darien

The Gale House is one of the oldest remaining examples of the Georgian cottages so common  in post-Civil War Darien. Few of these survive in original condition today; this is considered one of the least altered of the extant examples.

Dead Peoples Things for Sale, Woodbine

This tongue-in-cheek sign for an antique store greets you just as you cross the Satilla River bridge into Woodbine on US 17. It may be odd but it definitely gets your attention. It has become somewhat of a landmark itself. (This is an older photo, but I believe the sign is still there).
