Pump Your Own Water

Pump your own water

When I was a little girl, my brothers and I thought it was great fun to pump water out of the well at my grandmother’s farm. The last time I visited, I couldn’t get a drop out of it! I’m not sure if I gave up too quickly or if the well, indeed, has run dry.

Cookhouse Turned Guesthouse

22 Jul

The cook's house

In days gone by, the cookhouse served as the kitchen for the main farm house. It was built away from the main home because of the heat an open hearth generated. In the 1800s there were no air conditioners, and there was also a threat of fire.

Today this cookhouse in Madison, GA has been converted into a charming retreat for overnight guests.
