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.
