Fred’s Place, Johnson Hammock

Fred’s Place has been described as a “juke joint” and center of social activity, owned by Fred and Flora Johnson. The structure dates to circa 1900, but the usage as a juke joint would have been a good bit later, I believe.

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.
