When Marion Post Wolcott visited Greene County, Georgia in May 1939, she discovered many abandoned houses, many which appear to be quite large and grand at one time. If these houses could talk, imagine what stories they would tell!
Here are a few that have seen better days. I wish I knew who lived in them. The descriptions are the only information provided by Marion Post Walcott when she took them in 1939.
Comment below in the reply section if you can identify any owners.
