This old house…

Henry Tippins and his father built this farmhouse in 1870 in rural Georgia as the South was struggling to rebuild and restructure. He would live in the house until his death in 1924 at the age of 68.

The home is still owned today by Henry’s descendants who now use it as a weekend hunting cabin. Very few upgrades have been done and it has never been painted, leaving it in nearly original condition.

[Tattnall County, GA c. 1870]
