Morgan County, Georgia – Let’s go check out Nolan House, which is a big old abandoned house, vacant for about 35 years now.

Built in 1905 by James Alonzo Nolan, this was the center of a 2000 acre cotton farming operation.  Not only does the house remain, there is a crossroads that has the original store/commissary for the sharecroppers (oh wait, we say tenants now, that sounds nicer), mule barn, and sharecropper  tenant cabins.  IMG_3193

I was surprised by what good shape the interior was in, all things considered.  In the downstairs hallway, you can’t help but notice the stairs were painted sunshine yellow at one point.

Of course with the house being empty so long, some of the details aren’t there as you peer into rooms…

I would love to know what was in the niches on the sides of the doorway.



And of course years of neglect made things a little rough on an addition to the house.



Of course I had to see how things looked from the upstairs balcony…

I know it needs LOTS of work…

This is one I look at and think “it can be saved and brought back to its former glory”.  Beautiful land around the house.

There are several of the crossroads buildings still standing, including the commissary and mule barn.


This one is leaning just a bit…
